Passion For Promarkers No 61 - Distressing!!

Thanks to everyone who took part in my challenge on PFP last week - we had so many fabulous entries - check into PFP later to see who I finally  chose for my top five - so difficult I can tell you!! 

This week our challenge has been set by the wonderful Michelle who is so fantastic with Promarkers-and she's given us lots of tips and ideas on her weekend tutorial - take a look here!  Michelle has chosen distressing as her theme this week - I love this style of card - really must do more of them!

We're being sponsored this week by Just Tracy's and one lucky entrant could win a set of 14 clear stamps (No 485) from the Oliver's Orchard range - wow!!

Now onto my DT card for this week - I've used this gorgeous  sailor girl Cheeky Cherry from The Greeting Farm.

  As well as being my DT card for Passion for Promarkers this week, I'm also entering it into the following challenges:

Sketch Saturday - for the sketch (doh!)
Basic Grey - Use Gingham- backing paper, bunting and buttons
Sweet Stampin - Photo Inspiration and bunting

  The yellow papers are from the Nook and Pantry Basic Grey pad as is the striped piece at the bottom.  The rest are from stash from various places!  I distressed all the edges then inked them with Stormy Skies Distress Ink and then added Picket Fence Crackle Paint.

 I made the gingham bunting from some gingham squares that I bought because I liked them- knew they'd come in handy!

The flower I made a while ago from scraps - I'm using them very sparingly!!

I hope you like, I do, even though I say so myself!!  Didn't think I would when I was assembling it so glad it turned out as well as it did in the end!!
