D is for Distressed

Good morning , thanks for your visit.
Today at Alphabet Challenges a new challenge begins
D is for Distressing Inks/ papers etc.
Please visit the blog to see the ideas of the DT.
For my 6" sq  card I covered it with paper I had created
Using sprays and Moonglow Starburst Mica Paints.
Using Distress inks - Cracked Pistachio - Fossilized Amber
and Mermaid Lagoon I covered the white card,
then bleached  by sprinkling water over the
 coloured card, then patted it dry,
sponging over again with the same colours.
The stamp - Dragonfly Botanical from The Stampman,
stamped with Black Soot DI then clear embossed.
I stamped the dragonfly wings again onto
a piece of the background paper then decoupaged
the wings onto the dragonfly.
Have fun with your distressing.
