Today The Creative Inspiration Challenge is distressed. This is my guest card. I used a scrap dp, stamped a purple lace on it and then aged it . The purple plum is SU which I stamped with a flourish, added some bling with the jewel flourish and aged it for a vintage look.The beautiful image is Hannah with butterflies by Sandra Hammer. You can find this Pixie Cottage Stamp at Michelle's Scrapbooking and More. I watercolored her and then cut with a scalloped rectangle nestie. I drew the butterfly on vellum and colored with alcohol inks and glitter. I made the flowers, aged and glittered them also. I tied a fluffy bow with some handdyed seam binding and added some beads.

This also fits:
Method Playground: Antique
Stampin Sisters in Christ: Distressed
Sir Stampalot: Blooms and Butterflies
K&L Stampin: All tore up
Totally Gorjuss: Bling
