Off Road in St. Maarten

It's Friday!! And we all know what that means.... a new Challenge at Frosted Designs!! This week our challenge is Distressing! This is one of my favorite techniques and I didn't hold back on this LO!

I used my Tim Holtz paper distresser for most of the edges, then I inked several of them, and then I even added Glimmer Mist (with a stencil) to a layer! This was so much fun to do! And... I am super excited to get to play along at Stuck On U Sketches for the first time in a few months! I used their sketch for this LO... isn't it great?!

Supplies used:
Paper: DCWV Mi Casa stack
Metal, grungeboard letters and flourishes: Tim Holtz
Cricut: Create a Critter (flowers), Storybook (lg. die cut behind photo)
Journaling Sticker: American Crafts
Mini Stickers: Making Memories
Lace - from my stash... also distressed that!! heehee!!
and of course I used my irock to place all those fabby little metal glam rocks!
