PAPER PLAY CHALLENGE - Distressing

This week's challenge at Paperplay is DISTRESSING!

I have chosen to distress the edges for this challenge.  Luckily as I was running late this week I came across this image by Mo Manning coloured and mounted on embossed backing.  I had obviously started to use before for a challenge and changed my mind!  I love this when you've disguarded something for whatever reason and find again, this time it just works!

Techniques:
Medium:
Copics

Papers:
Patterned - paper stacks
Plain - Crafters Companion

Embossing folders
Cuttlebug embossing folder
Embellishments:
Ribbon
Charm and silver beading
Tiny gems

Best wishes,
