This is the start of an inspiration patch, where I hope that fellow scrappers and creators will come and find some inspiration, or even leave some inspiration for me.

Gift Tag - Scrap Africa - Challenge no.28 - Distressing with a Difference

Hello Everyone

There is a super new challenge up at Scrap Africa here.
It's all about Distressing with a Difference.  Pop over and have a look at the Design Teams inspiration and ideas.

Here is my take on it.  I created a gift tag.

I used bleach to add colouring to my spritzed background. I also embossed the edges of my leaves, which really gave them a nice lift.

I used the Teresa Collins Save the Date collection, along with some Design Worx chipboard leaves.
I fussy cut the patterned papers too, which really gave me some nice little pieces for layering.

It would be super if you could play along...

Thanks so much for stopping by!
I really do appreciate your visits.
