Distressing at International Art & Soul

Our theme this fortnight at the International Art & Soul Challenge is Distressing. I went with a shabby chic look.

I created the background with CTMH stamps & 3 pink inks. The watch is from the same set. I heat-embossed the metal game pieces & brads with a mix of white & hot pink powder. The edges were distressing with my Ingvild Bolme/Prima distressing tool.

It looks great in pink. I always think of dark and dismal colours when distressing but pink works fine. Hazel x
