Simply Create Challenge 50 - Distressing

Welcome to another Simply Create challenge! This fortnight we are sponsored by Bonibleaux Designs - otherwise known as Dude Time Doodles. Pop over to the challenge blog to find out what you could win!

The theme this fortnight is:


I've used papers from Alison Sloan - these are actually part of a Christmas digital scrapbooking kit called Comfort and Joy but I really like the papers and they are so versatile too! I've distressed the edges with scissors and added some string from the kitchen drawer. You can buy her digital kits here.

I've used Doghouse Doug as my image from Bonibleaux Designs and he's been coloured with Promarkers. I thought he fitted the theme quite well as he does look distressed!

Hope you can join in with us! I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Charisma Cardz: Distressing
Sassy Studios: Distressing
Corrosive Challenge: Earth Tones
Dream Valley Challenges: Distressing

  • Image: Doghouse Doug, coloured with Promarkers
  • Papers: Alison Sloan, Comfort and Joy Kit
  • Everything else: My stash
