Passion for Promarkers challenge #61

This week the theme over on PfP, chosen by Michele, is 'distressing'.
I used my Heidi Swapp edge distresser to roughen up the edges of all the papers and also used  a Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pad -Tea Dye on the edges, along with stippling some around the image with a small paint brush. The papers are  Basic Grey - Skate Shoppe, i'm ashamed to say that they have been stuck in a cupboard in my craftroom for a very long time, years even.
The image i have used is  Rolling Ollie by Papilio Stamps.

This weeks sponsor is JustTracy's, who have kindly donated the prize of a set of clear stamps from the Buzzcraft Oliver's Orchard range of stamps.

Hi Tracy,
This is a fabulous card. I love the papers and the open ribbon across the middle. This image is beautifully coloured and is fantastic for a boy card. I love it.

Love what you've done with Ollie! Great card, and those papers are so perfect with the image. Boy cards are often so hard to pull off, but this is just awesome! Hugs, Malin/PapilioStamps :)
