Perfect Sentiments Challenge 24: Distressed Thank You's

Welcome back friends...it's Wednesday so that means it's time for another FAB challenge from The Perfect Sentiment

I have to tell you that this challenge out of all the challenges since I've been on the PSDT is my favorite. I use some form of distress on almost every single scrappy project I design & create. I love this weeks challenge : )

Here is my distressed thank you....

I used a few different distress techniques on this card. The obvious one is the tearing I did in the center. I stamped my "Merci" sentiment on some coordinating CS and then placed another piece of CS over the top after distressing the edges with my Making Memories Distressing tool. I did a crisscross cut in the center (before adhering it to the card) peeled back the edges..distressed them with ink and my tool. Once it was adhered to the card I rolled the edges back a little more with a pencil...voila!!
Love this trim!!!
I did another distress technique on this fabric flower. I simply ran some Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Walnut Stain over the top and accented it with some Pink Pastel chalk ink.
Love the layers....
