I know what I know if you know what I mean

We've got a distress challenge over at Sweet Stampin' this week.  I'm not great at distressing cards, have to be in the right frame of mind....severe pmt usually (bizarrely) works well lol!  Hopefully you'll not all be suffering that while you're creating your distress masterpieces this week!

This fabulous stamp is from Inkylicious and there was sanding, inking, tearing, more sanding on this card.  I just went to town & enjoyed's like therapy!

As is my habit, I'll enter a few challenges:

A Gem of a Challenge - Birthday Card
Crafty Catz 387 - Anything Goes (optional CAS)
Crafty Friends 68 - Anything Goes
Penny Black & More - Close to Nature
Stamping Sensations - Autumn Glory TOP 3!

Thanks for dropping by,

The Genius (Occasionally!) xx

I had to smile reading this post as I had never really thought of using PMT as a positive in card making but it seems to have worked really well here! :)
The Inkylicious stamp looks fabulous here against the lovely Autumnal background colours and the white embossing really stands out beautifully. The crackled background adds another dimension too and I think that everything works really well together. Thank you for sharing this with us at Stamping Sensations and good luck. Sandra x

Hehe, Abi, PMT a plus! Way to turn that around chick!! I LOVE what you did with this gorgeous stamped image. The Autumnal colours are delish and the texture and torn edges are brilliant. A stunning creation hun. Sorry about being MIA. I thought I'd added my card before leaving for our family roadtrip (Spring break here in NZ) sooooo sorry to have dropped the ball. It's up now and all sorted. Hugs, Wends xoxo
