''Distress It' with Woodware and Crafty Cardmakers

Hi All
There is a new challenge at Crafty Cardmakers and More, where Lin is our host.
She is looking for you to 'Distress It' and not just with inks, plenty of distressed edges.
One of our sponsors for this challenge is Woodware and as I am still filling in for Siobhan again this week I have a good excuse for the lateness of my post, Tuesday is Siobhan's day to share.
Now I have to admit I don't do a great deal of 'Distressing' apart from with inks, so this was a bit of a challenge for me. But then isn't that the whole point of a challenge, to take you out of your comfort zone?
The alphabet background was handmade using my Creative Palette and a stencil.
I really must learn to write on the back to tell me what inks, or paints I used when I make these little pieces of Art. As it was taken from my stash of papers I have absolutely no idea what I used now.
I have paper pieced the poinsettia stamp using papers available from Woodware, having first 'distressed' them with some water and a little brute force lol.
The berries have been coloured using a White Gelly Roll Glaze pen,
and I added a few extra tiny dots with a black micron pen.
As you can see I even managed to distress the edges of the main panels, as requested by Lin.
Please don't forget to check out what the rest of my Teamies have come up with to inspire you, and also the Woodware blog where there is a new piece of inspiration every day this week.
Thanks for stopping by, any comments are always greatly appreciated.
Happy Crafting and hugs
