Crafty Cardmakers Challenge 69

This week at Crafty Cardmakers, we want you to 'distress it'!

We are sponsored this time by

I was lucky enough to have an image from Digi Doodle Shop to work with this week, and chose her Roadster image.

 Now, distressing is generally not my favourite technique. So, my distressing is generally pretty understated - no actual paper tearing or ruffling.

I coloured this lovely image with Promarkers, cut it with one of my nestibilities and edged it with ink - not Distress ink as I don't have any browns in that, but I used cocoa Versacolor. I cut  a piece of Coredinations Chocolate Box card using the same set of Nestibilities, and embossed it using a Sizzix folder before sanding to reveal the gears. The background paper is by JLJ Designs from a set called Pink and Chocolate which I got via Stitchy Bear Digital Stamps, but it's no longer available from there. I finished the card with some brads.

Hope you can join us this time. 

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Bearly Mine where anything goes,
I Love Promarkers where they want die cuts,
Penny's Papercrafty Challenge where anything goes,
DRS Design where they want masculine cards,
Little Miss Muffet where anything goes,

A great card, I really like the distressed cogs they look amazing and compliment the image so well - I love the sepia look you've created.

Thanks so much for creating a card for my challenge even though you don't like distressing.
