A little distressed...

Well here's to another fabby weekend folks, even though I got up this morning to discover that all my gorgeous sunshine has disappeared & been replaced with yucky wet rain... I'm sure it must be good for the garden though...
To share with you this morning I have a little something I done yesterday, amidst all the other samples that I unfortunately cannot share with you. This time I decided to combine the simplicity of white with some distressing... wasn't sure if it would work or not but I think I like it... what do you think?

Please excuse the glue shining through the ribbon but it hadn't quite dried when I took the picture.

For this one I used some Core-dinations card stock & distressed, done the same with the flowers but in an alternating colour, as well as one of the matting layers.

Stamped the floral image with Staz On then proceeded to colour with Koi water colours.

Some ribbon as stems & card candy as always, finish the whole card off.

Well I must get myself off this computer now & get on with the day... the quicker the daily chores are done the more time I will have to play with more crafty goodies... yes it will be another day of making samples, combined with some fun & I may even attempt a challenge card today... you just never know.

Hope you all have a fab Saturday & I'll be back again later.
