Fussy and Fancy Challenge #141 Distressed

It's Friday again and time for challenge #141 ... this time the theme is Distressed and it is being sponsored by beautiful Aurora Wings. I find this type of project quite hard because I like everything tidy and distressing means roughing up and inking edges. Some people are so clever at it and their projects are amazing. Anyway this is what I finally made after several other attempts ended up in the bin!!!  I decided to go with a tag for a change:

After so many failed attempts I settled on one of my favourite colour schemes Teal and Brown, the papers I used are all by Bo Bunny so I knew they would co-ordinate and then everything else sort of fell into place. I also decided to use some new dies I had bought recently ... Sissix alteration dies 4 different thinlits to give a distressed detail, I used the distressed diamonds effect on the second layer. The sentiment was cut using an only words Diesire die and the flower was cut with my faithful old Tattered Florals Bigz die.

Rooting around in my stash I found just the right colour crinkled ribbon, some twine, string of pearls and a watch charm. A very simple project in the end and I was quite pleased with it.

Well it's a beautiful afternoon and I did promise to go and help in the garden about an hour ago but got a bit distracted. I am sure a cup of tea for Hubby and a dog biscuit for my faithful friend Jasper will make sure I am forgiven.

Bye for now Crafty hugs Annie xxx
