Feeling a bit distressed

This was the sketch for last weeks Sketchie Challenge for the Let’s Get Stamping group at Craftbubble:

Along with sketch DT member Karen set the twist of using some distressing.So out came the Tim Holtz Paper Distresser and Distress Inks.The image is from Tanda Stamps Transport Set 1 and is stamped using Versafine in Sepia.Next I applied Old Paper,Tea Dye and Vintage Photo Distress Inks to the Nestabilities cut Oval.Then I splashed a little water over it and dabbed it with a clean,dry tissue to remove some ink to give it that well worn look ( a bit like me first thing in the morning!).Next I stamped the compass from Tanda Stamps Travel Set 1,applied the same inks and gave it a coating of Crackle Accents,even though it doesn’t show too well in the piccie.While I was waiting for it to dry I assembled the rest of the card.The base card was inked and I used part of a Cornish Heritage Farms Cracked Montana Earth Backgrounder on the corners.The Papermania Textured card and K & Co papers have had the ink and Distress Tool treatment.I tore part of one of the papers,punched some holes and threaded some waxed cord through.I can’t take credit for this idea.I saw in on A Passion For Cards blog first.I took a length of ribbon and scorched it with my heat gun,causing it to burn around the edges and buckle.Once the compass was dry I added it using foam tape.

I’m also entering Die Cut Dreams ‘No Flowers Allowed’,Ooh-La-La-Creations ‘Anything Goes’,Stamp,Scrap & Doodle Saturdays ‘Open Challenge’ and Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge ‘ Anything Goes’ with this card.
