Distressed Hot Chocolate!

I'm not good with distressing. Good at being distressed maybe but not distressing, lol. The Quixotic Challenge and Simon Says Stamp challenges this week are Hot Chocolate and the Creative Card Crew challenge is Distressed so I had a go at combining the 2 themes.

I started by colouring the gorgeous Tilda image with my Promarkers. The Rose Pink and Cocoa are just beautiful together. I then decided that she needed to be sat in an oval, so out came my Nesties. I printed out about 6 sheets of paper before I settled on these two designs. They are from a Funky Hand CD. I distressed the edges of all the sheets with Walnut Stain (I think I finally have the hang of it now) and stuck all the layers down onto an ivory card which I also distressed. The wording is also stamped with Walnut Stain......who'd have thought you could stamp with those ink pads too, roflmao.
