Very Distressing!

OK there are two reasons for showing you this card!
One it is the distressing I did at Sue's house last night...I am still trying to recover from the tearing and scrunching and inking up of perfectly good paper!!
The second is this is the first photo taken with my new "do it yourself light" box.

I am quite pleased with the results with the light box but not at all sure about the distressing card I think I am going to stick to cutting paper, using inks for stamping and definitely no scrunching!!

Thanks for looking Sue :o)

aww Sue it is gorgoeus your colouring is just fantastic, it's hard with distressing as we are not used to it, but if you did it all the time it would look normal to you, hope you understand what I'm trying to say lol. It's fab hugs Jill x

lol some people love to distress and some people get distressed by the distressing!! Like you I am in the latter category, I like straight lines too much lmao

lovely card though, I do like the effect but just don't like to do it myself :)

Well this is fabulous, Daisy looks gorgeous and the distressing looks good too. But I understand totally I can't tear paper and if I'm made too I close my eyes which doesn't help if you're trying tear straight!
The light box works brilliantly.

Sue you made me laugh - but I totally understand where you are coming from! I love Daisy and you made a fabulous card with her, even with the scrunching, inking and tearing. I just hope it hasn't distressed you too much! hugs, annie x
