Distressing at Creative Inspiration

Hello lovelies! How are you today? I hope you are both well and happy. We had a lovely day yesterday with good weather and a end of year play/assembly that was really fabulous. The end of term really is in sight .. the girls finish on Thursday and we are all ready for a break! Roll on!!!

Today I have news of a new challenge for you over at creative inspirations. The challenge this week is all about distressing. Here's what I did.


I made the background using a variety of green distressing inks - including bundled sage, mowed lawn, evergreen bough and pine needles - and a variety of stencils from Mr Holtz.


The main stamp is from Crafty Individuals. I love this little stamp - expect to see that often in the future! 

So why not join us this week? We would love to see all your creations with a distressed look!


This week's prize is from STAMP & CREATE and is a $20 GIFT CERTIFICATE!


I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

allsortschallenge: Splish splash splosh
Pan pastelpanpasteluk: Inspired by Tim Holtz
thats craftythatscraftychallenges: Masks, stencils, templates
CVCcountryviewchallenges: Stencil it

Hope to see you soon and thanks for joining me today!

Big Hugs

Rachel xx
