Paris City of Dreams



'Distress It'  is our new Challenge  at Crafty Cardmakers running for the next two weeks and hosted by Feesby. We would like you to make your entry to have a distress shabby  look.
We are sponsored by  the Digi Doodle Shop who are offering a generous  voucher for the  challenge winner.

Please pop over and see what we have all been making and get all the details.


The base layer of this card is graphic 45 paper.
The main image is a stamp from Indigo Blu.  I scraped around the edges with  a piece of sandpaper. The distressing was done with the aid of my favourite colour  Distress inks. Tea dye and Vintage photo.
I used a memory Box die for the corner.
The other additions came from my stash.

Thank you for stopping by, I realy appreciate your comments.
