Distressed at Creative Inspirations

This week at Creative Inspirations we are distressed - well at least that's our challenge! We want to see your distressed cards, Atc’s, Altered art... anything as long as it has been distressed.

We are sponsored by Simon Says Stamp

Stitchy very kindly provided the DT with images and I have used this beautiful fairy, the image, because I'm having problems with my printer at the moment, came out more green than black but I decided I liked the effect so I didn't add much colour to it - apart from the skintones, I just added a bit of glitter and sparkle. I distressed the edges of all the designer paper and cardstock, stamped some swirls, cut the image out and mounted it with foam pads. I added some sparkly ribbon, some fibre and a little bunch of flowers and buds, then finished it off with a sentiment from a set by Hero Arts.

Hope you like today's card which I'm entering for the following challenges:
Charisma Cardz - Mythical / fantasy
One Stitch at a Time - Make it pretty
Fab'n'Funky - Tempting texture
Our Creative Corner - Cut something out
City Crafter - All that glitters
Craft us Crazy - Anything goes 
Craft your passion - Anything goes 
Little Claire's - Anything goes
