Incy Wincy - Distress It!

This week at Incy Wincy we challenge you to use distressing on your projects. Our sponsor this week is InStyle Stamps. This is what InStyle has to say..."InStyle stamps has a variety of unique rubber and digital stamps, perfect for every craft project. Our Retro and Anime stamps are nothing like you have seen yet. We offer quality stamps at affordable prices. Stylish designs for Today's Stamper!" The prize is 4 digi images, so come on over to Incy Wincy and show us your distressed projects today!

For my project I used this cute image provided by InStyle called "Ava Combing Hair." I wanted to create a Christmas card, so I perused my Christmas stacks for some elegant Christmas paper, as I wanted this to appear as Ava getting ready for a Christmas party. I colored her with copcis and used gold stickles on her wings. I distressed the edge and image using the Tim Holtz distressing tool as well as TH distress inks. I embossed the bottom panel using the Cuttlebug textile folder. This card is being entered in the following challenges:

Flourishes Timeless - Christmas in July
Flutter by Wednesday - anything with a fairy
Wild Flower Patch - grunge
Digi Doodle Shop - texture
Aud Sentiments - no sentiment
Get Sketchy - sketch
Simple Doodles - holidays
