Basic Grey Challenge

The challenge over at Basic Grey Challenges this week is to use distressing on your creation. I decided to go for an Autumnal look as it feels very Autumnal today. The papers are from the Mellow collection, flowers Prima Essentials, bobbly ribbon from Ribbon Oasis. Tilda is coloured with Prismas and distressed with chalks. I also used my Cuttlebug for embossing and a fab acrylic stamp around the border of the image and sanded paper edges and even tore a bit - yikes! I do like the effect though.
A couple more things to say while I'm here; first a huge thank you to Gisela for the two awards - "THANK YOU GISELA!", and 'Hello' to Kirsty who I met at Harrogate at the weekend and I hope the sandwich tasted OK after being on your foot!
Thanks for visiting - I really appreciate you taking the time to leave a comment xxx
