It's so distressing.........

It's so distressing is the title of the challenge on Simon Says this week. They asked you to use Tim H products if you have them, and I don't! So I turned to my brayer and heritage ink pads and this is the result. The butterfly is from Craftwork cards and I inked over it, the little square was in a Docrafts kit and I have inked the edges and stamped "with love" on it. Stamped over with various vintage stamps.
I'm also entering it into Creative card crew challenge who want "vintage/aged" amd Allsorts challenge who don't want you to use any DPs.

Hi Linby,
I love this card. I very seldom use my brayer - I really must get it out. This is very effective and gives a fantastic result. Brilliant work.
