Friends (distressed frame)

Made one more work for the Hero Arts 'distress' challenge.
(もともと私のディトレス・グランジの作風は、Altered Art系で作風的にはMr. Tim Holtz 氏よりですから、このあたりから何の展開もナシでした(^^;) )

This is my card, 'Friends (distressed frame)'
The center piece was stamped the Misty Swirl Pattern with Saddle Brown StazOn on a grungeboard which was prepaired slightly painting with 2 acrylic paints. I painted again with Snow Cap (white) color after the StazOn ink dried. The edge of the grungeboad was distressed with a distresser and put normal and distress stickles around it.
The background material (board) is a chipboad, painted with 2 acrylic paints. And the paper flowers are also slightly colored with some Ranger distress inks to have them an aged look.
