Distressed? No- more like Depressed!!
Oh dear it never rains for me does it?
My Nana was ill just recently, thankfully she is well on the road to recovery, she is doing fine........NOW my sister has fallen and broken BOTH her ankles!! OMG.
I spent a bit of yesterday in the hospital with her, and today I have been helping her at home. It will be a nightmare because my sister is not a bit like me. I would be able to sit all day with my feet up getting better, watching DVD's and doing a bit of Crafting. Unfortunately my sister is like a whirlwind all day long and is stir crazy already!! BUT she's in plaster so there is no running about for a few months now~
Tonight's card is made using two of my Anya stamps that I have had for ages and forgotten all about using, glad I did use them together.
I am not the worlds best distresser, but I do love the effect.
If you want to see distressing at it's best, get yourself over to my blog friend Fleurs blog and take a look at her beautiful cards, I call her the distressing genius, take a look at her stunning work here:
A Passion For Crafts
I have had a go at distressing the papers, I have used my scissors to cut up the edges and then used Stardust stickles over the top.
The ribbon and raffia strip are from my stash, and so its the lovely chipboard heart. I have masked and stamped the two Anya's and coloured them with Pro-Markers. I finished by adding a few little roses.
