Addicted to CAS Challenge - Distress




Hello again,
It's time for another challenge at Addicted to CAS challenge blog, and our code word is 'Distress'. Kylie is our hostess, and our sponsor for this challenge is Uniko Studios! The winner will receive a £15 E-Gift Certificate, so I hope you'll put on your thinking caps and join us this week. Also, we are thrilled to have Ellen as our guest designer sharing her beautiful CAS cards with us again this week.  

Here is my card:




I found it challenging to incorporate distressing on my cards, so I thought it would be fun to grab my Tim Holtz distress inks to stamp my images, and colored them in using my water brush. I added some Wink of Stella for sparkle and die cut the front panel with Lil Inker's Stitched Rectangle Frame.

I hope you have a chance to stop by the Addicted to CAS blog and check out all of the inspiration from my team mates, and play along with us!

Thanks for stopping by,
