I ♥ Promarkers Challenge 85 - Distressing!

This week's challenge at I ♥ Promarkers is Distressing. We are being sponsored by Digi Doodle Shop with the prize being $10 to spend in their online store. 

For my image I used vintage sewing machine by Digi Doodle Shop coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers. I die cut it with Nesties Labels 2, distressed the edges, inked pumice stone Distress Ink, then added some gesso. 
The dp is Tim Holtz (not that you can see it any more lol), to which I distressed the edges as before, and added gesso. I then stamped a Claudine Hellmuth  domestic foam stamp using terracotta acrylic paint and stamped over the top with the outline stamp in frayed burlap Distress Ink.
 In the top left hand corner I used some sequin waste as a template and sprayed Glimmer and Memories Mists. I then added a doily and the image.
 The flower was made by firstly stamping Hero Arts printed flowers with frayed burlap onto Tim Holtz dp, cutting them out, then scrunching them up, adding a brad and then some gesso. 
Other items used are a swirly corner from Make It Crafty dabbed with a little butterscotch Adirondack acrylic paint, lace from Wild Orchid Crafts, and 3 buttons from stash. Cardstock is white 6 x 6".

I'm entering my card into these challenges:

Get Hippity with Ippity Challenge 6 - Buttons, bows or bling
Gingerloft Challenge 25 - Vintage or distressed
Die Cuttin' Divas Challenge 34 - Shabby Chic or Vintage
