Mo's Dream Team Blog Hop

I love the 3rd Thursday of the month - it's when Mo's Dream Team comes together for a themed hop. You should have have arrived here from the delightful Peri's blog but if you didn't you can head back to this month's hostess with the mostest, the fabulous Jak and she's asked us to Distress!

I chose one of Mo's gorgeous Christmas images - Pammy's Stocking - available HERE. And if you love this image and don't have the time or inclination to colour your own, then Mo has a gorgeous pre-coloured version for you HERE.

I started my distressing by cutting off poor Pammy's legs so she would fit into my "frame". I inked most of my edges with chalk inks as well as distressing the main image with my distressing tool. I used some glimmer mist on the base layer of the frame and the white roses to add a nice metallic patina. My last piece of distressing was to some fabric circles - my heat tool was used to curl the edges to create the main flower.

My DPs are from Memory Box and the pennant was cut using my Whiff of Joy die. The letters were cut using a Cuttlebug alphabet.

Your next gorgeously distressing stop on the hop is the fabulous Dorcas' blog. And here's the full hop list if you get lost along the way - you can find their blog links on my left sidebar under Mo's banner.

Jak, Peri, Debbie, Dorcas, Mina, Arielle, Lori, Kerttu
