Pollycraft Monday Challenge # 106 Distressing

Hello!  Yes, it's Monday again and we have a new challenge for you at Pollycraft! How cool was the recycling challenge?!  It really go me thinking outside of the square and we had some awesome entries, not to mention the fabulous creations from the design team!

This week Maria has chosen the challenge theme and it is 'Distressing'!  It's an easy one right?  You just have to take a knife or some scissors and run the blade along the edge of your papers and/or crumple the papers up and/or ink the papers a bit and/or splatter them with ink or paint... so many possibilities!  Head over to the Pollycraft Monday Challenge blog and check out the fabulously distressed projects from the team!

This week's prize is 10 digis from Pollycraft!  Awesome!

So, here is my card...  










































































I know, I know...  I used Fluffy for last week's challenge, but somehow he was calling out to be used again for this challenge!  Fluffy is from the Critters and Cogs set at Pollycraft and I have coloured him with copics (see details below).  The papers are from Making Memories, Crate Paper and October Afternoon.  I have distressed the edges with my new (but completely unnecessary when you have a knife or scissors) Tim Holtz distressing tool, and inked the edges with Distress Ink (I think the colour is Walnut).  The tag is from Maya Road and I have splotched some acrylic paint onto it.  The sentiment is from Lili of the Valley and the ribbon is from The Ribbon Girl.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Stampin for the Weekend # 14: Spots and Dots
Dream Valley Challenges # 13: Distressing


Here are the copics I used:

























Have a lovely week!  Today is day 4 of our 10 day guest trip and I'm flat out busy with a really bad internet connection so I won't be around much.
