I had a lot of fun with this LO! I kind of went out of my comfort zone by doing a lot of distressing! I used my scissor and then my mom had some of the cool Tim Holtz Distress Inks.. which really work! I never knew that they were different than regular inks. I may have to invest in 1 or 2 sometime. I also added some fun brown splotches of mist to act as "dirt!" TFL!
