House Mouse Challenge - Distressed


Hello, happy day! I just had to make a card for the House Mouse Challenge. As a member of the design team beginning with Challenge 70 on May 24th, I still wanted to get in on the fun so I am entering this challenge one last time.
I distressed the edges of the card and the image with the side of my scissors. Used Vintage photo distress ink on the card edge by running the pad along the edge and on the image using Tim Holtz's foam pads on the wood handle. The designer paper is by Basic Grey. I colored with Copics and sponged in the ground and sky with dye ink.
Just a reminder, when I begin with the Design Team on Monday May 24th, we are having our first ever Blog Hop. There is a fabulous treasure trove of goodies up for grab on the House Mouse site, and some of the design team will be offering goodies on their individual blogs (ME included). Sounds like a lot of fun.
Have a great rest of the day.........Thanks for stopping by. Until later...........
