Mo’s Blog Hop of the Month–Distress

Its blog hop time again and your chance to win one of two $5 credits for Mo's Digital Pencil too...so don't forget your comments on our DT's blogs along the way...our host this month is Danielle and her theme is Distressing

You should have landed on my blog from Mina if not then start at the beginning so you don’t miss anyone.

I want no puns that this will be me in a few years time but I did however feel myself drawn to this image because of the bicycle.

Mummu’s Bike from Mo’s Digital Pencil

I took distressing to the max using blending techniques with Pan Pastels, embossing, tearing, rolling, fraying etc…

I know what you are thinking, that could be my backside and yes after the Christmas snacking I have to get right back on my bike to work it off again ha ha!

I used Copics and Chalks to colour the image, papers from the Good life Scrapbook pad some gems, Pan Pastels, embossing folder from Crafters Companion amongst other bits and pieces.

Next up is Gretha and she will have something pretty amazing to show you.

Dont forget to leave comments on the blogs you visit for a chance of a $5 store credit
