The theme this week at Polka Doodles is De-stress. I'd normally say the way to de-stress is to spend some time in my craft room but I've been trying to make a card for my Aunt's 70th birthday and it's not going very well. I've put that aside for now in the hope my mojo will return later.
The background papers for this card are from the Pretty Tough cd as is the sentiment. They're printed directly onto the card and the edges distressed with Walnut Stain distress inks. The images are from a Polka Doodle set called For The Boys which was a freebie with Complete Cardmaking a while ago. The images are layered onto Core'dinations and the edges are distressed with a pair of scissors. I've got several different distressing tools but usually end up using scissors!
