DCM Most Distressing.

It's that time again over at DCM, here's the brief.....Hi it's Keryn here and it's my turn to Distress you all, or at least your cards with this weeks dare. You can make a card for any season, any holiday, any occaision but you need to use either a fingernail, curled edges, sandpaper, tearing, anything you like really as long as looks like it's had a fair bit or wear and tear.
For this challenge I had my first attempt at making a hybrid card, it was about all I had time for I'm afraid. I know it doesn't look all that distressed, especially with Dottie laid there like Lady Muck, far from distressed. But if you look closely enough you'll see that I did a distressed effect on the main image and the background before printing and then when the card was complete I attacked the edges with some sand paper.
I must admit I did have fun playing about with the images on the computer, I'm really pleased with my Dottie backing paper.

Gorgeous card Louly. Love the colours and your right Dottie doesn't look in the least distressed but her background does.
