Tuesday Throwdown #299: Distressing

LATE EDIT: Thank you to my Tuesday Throwdown Teamies and Friends for organising and participating in this incredible Birthday Blog Hop. You are the BEST!!!


Good morning, friends! Time for a new challenge over at Tuesday Throwdown. The theme this week is "Distressing". Our sponsor for this challenge is MHKDesigns. . Check out MHKDesigns Etsy Store for some gorgeous vintage images.

My project this week features the Birds and Branches set. I have paired it with a patterned paper from the Beautifully Brocade collection and framed the focal image with WRMK Avocado washi tape.

Here's a closer look the image. I coloured it with Graph' It markers and some Stardust Stickles for sparkle.

Now it's your turn to create a project based on this week's theme: "Distressing". For ideas and inspiration, take a peek at what the rest of the DT members have made. Remember to link up your project at the Tuesday Throwdown Challenge Blog by 3pm Pacific / 11pm UK on Monday, June 27th.  And the most important requirement: Have Fun!

Thank you so much for stopping by today. The weather man says it's going to be a beautiful day here ... blue skies, sunshine and all that. I hope your day is the same.
