DCM: Most Distressing!

"Hi it's Keryn here and it's my turn to Distress you all, or at least your cards with this weeks dare. You can make a card for any season, any holiday, any occasion but you need to use either a fingernail, curled edges, sandpaper, tearing, anything you like really as long as looks like it's had a fair bit or wear and tear."

I really enjoyed this challenge as it's so different to my other stuff. But I'm not very good when it comes to distressing things, I either smudge ink over the middle of what I'm doing or tear the image in half, ha ha! But I was very careful with this one and went for pre-distressed Basic Grey papers and just a bit of tearing and edge-inking! I used my Lola and Bird Sugar Nellie stamp watercoloured with Whispers pens, a really old Best Wishes stamp and some little pearls. I hope you're having a nice weekend!
