Dare U 2 Digi Stamp - Guest Designer!

I was so pleased to be asked to join in at the Dare U 2 Digi Stamp Challenge as a guest design team member for August! The challenge is going fortnightly for the summer holidays so I will be with them for three challenges.

The theme for this challenge is "Distressing" so we would like to see torn/distressed edges, sponged edges, sanding etc on your creations and remember to include at least one digi stamp.

I've used a digi stamp by Sandra Dry. This one is called "Hazel" and is available on its own or as a set of three. I just had to have all three as they are all amazing.
I've coloured the image with Copic markers. The panel has been embossed with a Cuttlebug folder, I've then sanded it and added some distress ink. I didn't have any orange so I mixed fired brick and mustard seed. The DCWV paper has been torn and I've added distress ink to the edges of that and the edges of the image.
The pumpkins are stickers that I've had in my stash for ages. I've also added some black pearls and a metal tab.

I hope you can join in at the Dare U 2 Digi Stamp Challenge over the next fortnight, I look forward to seeing all your distress work.
