Feeling Distressed!

It's Polkadoodle challenge time again, and this week the theme has been chosen by Emma, who wants to see distressing on our cards, tear it, ink it, sand it, scrunch it, tell it how ugly it looks LOL! just make sure it's distressed!


There is also an extra prize up for grabs as the lovely people at Letraset have kindly donated a Set of their fantastic brand new Flexmarkers to us this week for one lucky winning entry! 


PRE-ORDER!!*Flexmarker 6 pack - Set One
So make sure you get entering this week's challenge to be in with a chance of winning.
Rules of the giveaway are that you MUST follow our challenge rules - please ensure you follow the standard rules or you will not be included in the draw! The winner will be drawn at random from the entries for this week, so it doesn't matter how good you are at colouring you still have a chance of winning! The winning entry will be announced on the blog along with the challenge winner as normal.

Letraset will also be running a colouring competition on their blog on Wednesday 28th September using a lovely Polkadoodles image, so head on over there to have a look and get yourself a fab free Polkadoodles download to boot - more freebie goodness!

For my DT card this week I have used the gorgeous new Pretty Sweet CD, I have sanded and inked the edges of my papers, used a Cheery Lyn die for the doily and Tim Holtz tattered florals die for the flower. The flower is made up of papers from the CD printed onto pearl paper, which have been scrunched and spritzed with Glimmer Mist, I also added some faux stitching. Gems are from stash.



Don't forget to pop over to the Polkadoodles challenge blog and check out the fabulous
distressed creations by the rest of my teamies,
and remember if you enter this week you also have the chance of winning those fab Flexmarkers.
