Tuesday Taggers challenge #7 Age it

Morning everyone, this weeks challenge at Tuesday Taggers is 'Age it', we have a tutorial from the master of distressing 'Tim Holtz', another fantastic prize from our sponsor The Craft Barn and joining the team as a guest designer this week is Sandie Wright. Dont forget that you dont need to make a tag to join in, we'd love to see cards too :)

So here's my DT creation...it's an acordian atc, my first attempt at one of these i really enjoyed making it :)

Stamps are BG from The Craft Emporium
Border stamp is Saffraslass
BG paper Lemonade and OA text paper both from The Craft Emporium
Doodlebug heart buttons
Alphabet stamps

I'm not sure the character stamps will be everyones cup of tea but i think they are cute in their own way..kind of kooky, if thats the right word, lol. I aged the text paper by simply scrunching the paper into a ball to crease then wiped an ink pad over the top and added a little distressing with a file and ruler to the edges of the paper...easy peasy.

So pop over here for more details on this weeks challenge and to check out the rest of the Dt's lovely work....enjoy your day xx
