Distress happy!

WAY out of my comfort zone!! :)

So I was playing with May's SOTM (which I still have a few left for those local to me that wanted one) and I had a few stamped out on different shape cutouts from the Art Philosophy cartridge. I coloured one with my new set of CTMH watercolour pencils and decided to make it into a card.

I actually distressed!!!! (I NEVER do this normally so this was way out of my comfort zone).
I was very happy with the card when it looked like this:

... but  of course I couldn't leave well enough alone and decided to add some more ink around the image because I was "distress happy" and now it looks like this:

which I am not nearly as fond of. I do still like it though. :)

The sentiment is actually the "zip strip" off of one of the Pemberley papers.

I'd love to know what you all think. :)

    You havent distress yet... well now you have started you wont be able to stop!!!
