Distressed Sunflower


Hi everyone.  Time for the next challenge at Addicted to CAS.  This time, the code word has been chosen by Kylie (Kylie's Addicted to Stamps).  And she chose this fun word ...







There are several ways in which to interpret this word.  I used sponging and tearing to distress my text background ... and more brown sponging on the sunflower and leaves to tone down the colours and make them seem more aged.  Looking forward to seeing how you interpret the word.

We have the very talented Ellen Parker (In a World of Craft) joining us as Guest Designer this month.  Check out the link to the challenge HERE to see her beautiful Distress card, and the cards from the rest of our very talented group of designers.

I hope you'll play along and join in the fun ... see you in the gallery! :)

And, I'm adding this to the current Birthday Challenge at Uniko Studios! :)
