Hints and Tips
Just because a challenge calls for a distress finish doesn't mean the card has to be dull and boring.  I used Tim Holtz Distress inks to make these colours, I just kept applying the colour until I had achieved the depth of colour I required.

This card was entered into the following challenges:
Penny Black at Allsorts: July Challenge Flower Power.
Truly Scrumptious: Challenge #61 Sketch Time.
Penny Black Challenge Blog: Distressing.
