Howdy Y'all - SNS Challenge 112 - Distressing

Well, Howdy to y'all!  We  have a new challenge starting today at Sketch N Stash,  and it was my turn to choose the optional theme to go with the sketch below, so I chose Distressing.
I've used this rootin' tootin' cutie from Mo's Digital Pencil called Howdy which you can find here.  I've coloured her with Pro and Flexmarkers and layered her up with some My Mind's Eye Howdy Doody papers which even match in name!!  The papers are the item that have been in my stash for a while.
I also added some chicken wire edging around the image and over one of the mats for that extra country feel!  The star banner is a Whiff of Joy Die, and the scrabble tiles, I managed to track down in WH Smith of  all places just before Christmas.
Crafty Individuals are our wonderful sponsors for this fortnight's challenge and you can see a pic of their brilliant prize just below

Take a peek here for the rest of the SNS team's fabulous creations for this challenge.
Hope you have a good week - at least we finally  had some gorgeous sunshine over the weekend!
