Fairies From The Dark Side and Challenge #6

It's time for a new challenge over at Stamping With The Dragon. This time, it's all about distressing. Hope on over to the challenge here, for challenge #6, and play along. You could win three digi's of your choice from our sponsor for this round... Lil Diva Stamps. She has some awesome images! You definitely don't want to miss out on your chance to win! While you're there, check out the wonderful photos of inspiration from the rest of our awesome Design Team!

This was my first attempt at distressing.... And Ive decided that I'm not very good at it! LOL I guess it's not bad for a first attempt, and hopefully I'll get better as I go along.

For the background, I used black Coordinations paper and then embossed it with the spots and dots cuttlebug folder, then distressed it with sandpaper so the pink core would show through. I also embossed another piece of the Coordinations with a flower pattered cuttlebug folder, and distressed that, as well. I bought the DP specifically for this card, but then once I started putting the card together, I wasn't sure I liked the paper LOL. I used a pink bow with pearl center as an embellishment.

The image is colored with Promarkers
