Just for Fun - Distress Him

This week is the last Just for Fun Challenge.    It has been a pleasure getting to know so many of you and getting to see some amazing art work.   Thank you for all the support given to all the team this last year.  Thank you to Von, Neet and in the past Sam for all your hard work for the challenge and good luck.

Onto the final challenge and it is a glorious messy non cute one, thank you Neet.   We have been making Men themed projects all month this week Neet's challenge is to use at least one distressing technique on them.

For my tag I used a piece of Kraft card stamped with DI all of which have also been blended over the card with the addition of green.   Once stamped the card was crumpled scratched and the edges distressed with distressing tools.   A strip of watercolour paper was torn off a page and treated in the same way as the kraft card.   The lantern is the Marianne die I've taken a real shine to cut into a kraft envelope.

Will you help us go out with a bang and share your distressed men theme projects with us?

  10. Little did we know when I chose the theme that the Distress one would be the last (play on words?). Still, that's the way life goes some times.
