Polkadoodle Challenge 10 - Distressing

Time for another Polkadoodle challenge!  And this week the theme is:


And I've actually incorporated a used tea bag and splodged it all over the Wonderland papers!  I printed the papers as A6 sized and then added to a card blank which has also been splodged with a wet tea bag.  I've added some faux stitching around the edges plus some seed beads and half pearls.

The flowers are made from a recycled Primark bag along with the handle (I must have had the bag a while as the handles are different now!)  I've added some bright pink tissue paper to the followers and seed beads to the centres.  Hat pin is from my stash.

Good luck with the challenge!  I'd like to enter the following:
