The challenge this week at ABC is D for distressing and at A Spoonful of Sugar Challenge 41 is torn edges. I used white cardstock to make another pocket card. The image is Rockstar Anya from the Greeting Farm coloured with pro-markers and distressed with inks and a Heidi Swapp edge distresser. The newspaper bp behind the image is torn and distressed with inks. The backing has been stamped with a texture mat stamp and embossed, then distressed with inks. I added a naked chipboard flower which I inked and a Basic Grey brad. The pockets inside have been punched with a Martha Stewart doily punch, then dabbed with inks. I know a lot of people hate ripping papers and distressing, but I love it.
I'm a 44 year old mum of 2, a daughter of 19 and a son of 8. I haven't worked since having my daughter as I became ill and was diagnosed with lupus 14 years ago. I wanted a hobby that would take my mind off everything, so crafting was suggested to me. I started in March/April 2008 and have been having fun learning lots of techniques ever since.
