Dottie's all distressed!

This week over at Dottie's World , Nicole set the challenge to include some distressing in your Dottie projects; any type of distressing, as long as you include a Charmed Download.
I wanted to try an image from the Boy, Oh Boy! collection I haven't yet used but I am not sure it was the right one to go with the challenge, perhaps something more traditionbal would have worked better. Still I loved colouring this image and had great fun trying a few different distressing techniques.

I distressed the edges of my patterned paper and sentiments with some scissors and roughly inked them, I used ink on my Cuttlebug embossing folder and once again, roughly inked the edges, I included some paper tearing on my project-something I haven't done for ages and lastly I srunched up the brown layered nestie and used metallic rub-ons to create a more textured effect...this doesn't really show...perhaps I should have been a bit more heavy handed. LOL
Hope you can pop over and join in the destressing distressing fun!
It's my turn to set the challenge over on Dottie's World next week, and as it's my birthday I have some very special Birthday Blog Candy up for grabs kindly donated by Charmed Crafts and Cards. Make sure you drop by to find out the details!

This is really a great card. Love the colors on this one. And the embossing is so great. I think this image is just fab for these papers and colors. Great job, love it.
Wish you a great week.
