A Distressed Christmas

I thought this could work for the current Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge, which is distressed/sanded. This card has both
It started along the lines of Tim Holtz Tag # 3 from last year (plaid backgound using glossy card and alcohol inks - great fun)
I then stamped over it, and when the ink was dry I sanded it in places. It made the ink fade, but left a mess of ink on my sanding block :(
The edges of the card have been distressed with the Tonic Edge Distressor. The frame is coloured with distress ink, then overstamped.

Golden Anniversary Card

This card is for our friends who are celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary soon. They love gardening, so I went for a more floral theme (although they may not appreciate the dandelions...)

Music card

For this card I used Distress inks (Scattered Straw, Dried Marigold, Brushed Corduroy) and mostly Darkroom Door stamps. I also added some Tom Holtz tissue tape to the bottom of the card.
