Belles n Whistles, Distressing Challenge.

Happy Monday, today there’s a new challenge over at Belles n Whistles. The challenge is distressing. I used my Distress ink to distress my Magnolia patterned paper, then used my scissors to distress the frame of the image. I love this image, she is adorable and so easy to color.

I have less than 2 more weeks and my term will be up at Belles n Whistles. Thank you so much Summer for this amazing opportunity.
