Pollycraft Challenge 106 'distressing'

Good moaning... (went a bit 'allo allo' there!)

Hope you've all had a good weekend? I think I blinked and missed it... I'm still convinced its not really Monday!

Well... today we have a new challenge for you over at the Pollycraft challenge...
Maria has chosen....
Distressing!

let me tell ya! I think I could have posted ANYTHING and qualified for this, as it definately caused me some distress!!!

I'm just not good at distressing!! and thats the end of it!

So, after a Sonny card, and a rocking horse card.... (which both went in the bin)
I ended up with a robot card...
(and YES!!! the edges ARE distressed!! just not much ;))


This fella is Tin rose... from the critters and cogs range....
I've coloured him with promarkers...
The papers are DCWV and (?)
I've added a little heart button to his chest, just cos, I felt the card needed something!
I tucked two stamped brackets behind the circle to add a bit of interest...
 (this is from the greeting farm spotlight set)
The sentiment has been created using 2 different stamps
(only stamping individual words, to create a different sentiment... LOVE this!)
the 'Love' is from the Critters and Cogs set.. and the 'you' is from the greeting farm spotlight set...

Some enamel accents, a bit of fabric and doodling.... and thats it!

Thanks for visiting today!!
