STV's Mix It Up Monday Challenge

hi there,
This week at STV Regina Hardy is the Mix It Up Monday challenge hostess . She has challenged us to create using a distress technique.

"This week's challenge is to Distress a card and include some form of a Tag.  Momento inks work well in addition to Tim Holtz inks.  You may also use sandpaper, etc., as long as there is some form of distressing on the card."

I decided to go back a couple years and pulled out one of GKD's stamp sets by Nina Brackett -
 Lord of the Season


The sides of the image are distressed with Ranger's Faded Jeans, then used scissors along the edges and  sponged again - the bottom piece is white cardstock with torn edges sponged with Ranger's Antique Linen.

Matted onto SU's-Not QuiteNavy and GKD's - Green Grass cardstock - designer paper is retired from SU and ribbon is from GKD.  Colored image with various pencils .... but used Copic 31 at the base.

(I have made a REAL dent in my stash designer paper..... that's in the box under my desk LOL...only have about 4 more boxes to go)

Hope all are doing well,
