We're Distressing!

Spring vacation week 2, day 5 we're distressing! The kids are out of school and we have an extra friend over today so there's an "odd kid out". My daughter was feeling left out of the boys play and not happy. I asked if she'd like to do some stuff with me today. ...not really...

We started off packaging up Mother's Day cards to ship off to Operation Write Home and going to the post office. Once she got into the swing of it she was enjoying herself.

When we got back home we started playing with Tim Holtz distress inks my friend Priscilla let me borrow. We decided we should make cards for Operation Write Home and got busy.
The above card is my daughter Jenny's. We really got into blending the distress inks with sponges and a mini mister. The first two images we stamped we used a Veramark pad and black embossing powder. The butterflies below I'd stamped on my first attempt and decided heat embossing would show up better in the future.
Operation Write Home is also doing a blog hop starting tomorrow morning, I hope you'll join us!
