Virginia's View #10

I don't know why I've put off entering a card in Virginia's View challenge this time.  After all it's "All Things Distressed"  and no one likes distressed things more than me.  And I'm not just talking about cards here, folks.  You should see some of my furniture. I used to do a lot more distressing on cards until I jumped on the almost CAS bandwagon but I still like to do them.  The one I have today is not what I really call distressed other than it uses Distress Inks to watercolor with a little inking around the edge and some splatters.  I think it give it a rather vintage look.

The stamp is from Penny Black.  I used my Lawn Fawn stitched rectangles to cut the green scrap and the watercolor paper.

Speaking of Virginia, I'm so excited that I won the blog candy from her Coffee Lover's Blog Hop post. It has some fabulous things in it and I can't wait to get it in my hot little hands. Thanks so much, Virginia, for the give away.

Thanks for stopping by.  I always appreciate your visit and your comments.
