A distressing time over at Pollycrafts Monday!

 (Please scroll down for my Make It Monday DT post!)


It's Pollycrafts Monday and this week we are challenging you toget distressing!  Now I don't normally associate distressing with these cuties but actually shabby chic goes really well with them!  Here is my DT make...

 
 

I love love love this baby collection!  This is Moon Lullaby, one of four from the Little Stars collection.  At only 99p each, it's difficult not to treat one's self!!  I used my trusty Tim Holtz distressing tool to softly roughen the edges and Distress Ink in Antique Linen to highlight the edges.


I hope you get a chance to play along this week!  This week's prize is a £10 voucher from Pollycrafts - that's a lot of 99p digis!!


I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Paper/cardstock: Bazzill cardstock, K&Company Small Wonders Girl
Stamps: Pollycrafts
Moon Lullaby, Paper Salon sentiments
Mediums: Copics, Distress Ink in Antique Linen
Accents: none!
Tools: Grand Nestabilitie and Nestabilitie dies, Tim Holtz Distressing Tool
