Distressed

I've been interested in distressing techniques and finally decided to give it a shot. At the BF Paper Party, I saw a Sizzix sample that used the distressing technique on Hello Kitty. I found myself going back to that card over and over again, so I decided to try my hand at distressing.
Here's what I came up with... this was definitely out of my comfort zone, but I'm pretty happy with the results. I guess its good to take a risk once in awhile. To add some bling (who am I kidding, a lot of bling), I used the In Stitches flourish templates by Bazzil. Since I didn't have that many small clear crystals, I decided to use red since the flower I made was red.
Here's a close up look at Hello Kitty.
Hope you like it!
Supplies used:
Hello Kitty- Sizzix

Hey Jenny, your distressed HK card turned out really cute! I was looking at the sample again today. I may have to try something like that myself.
