So distressed!

Hello - and I'm back again!  I'm not on for a few days and then you can't get rid of me lol!  It's time for a new challenge over at Polkadoodles and this week the theme is 'Distressing'.

I decided to make a hanger for this challenge using one of the gorgeous Polkadoodles stamps 'Be Neighbours'

I've used coredinations card and distressed the edges.  The backing papers are from the Polkadoodles Picknix cd - there are some fantastic design papers on there! I've added distress ink and faux stitching (using LOTV stamp). The sentiment is also from the Picknix cd.

I've coloured the image with flexmarkers and some added chalks. I've added a Sizzix flower die cut (using the same papers) and some lace from stash. There's a Marianne die cut swirl, some gorgeously cute wooden scissors from CraftyEmblies and some twine for the hanger.  
So, something a little different from me! Hope you like it! 
So do join us at Polkadoodles Challenge this week with your distressing!  And there are some fabulous offers on at the moment over at Polkadoodles on cds, stamps and all sorts of crafting goodies! 
Back soon,
