It's my Blogaversary on TIO Today - Distress It!!

I have distressed it on my TIO blog this week, where it is a year old blogaversary today. I shall put up some candy, later, so you can celebrate with me. Anyone who takes part in a challenge in the next month, and who puts up a picture of the candy on their blog, with a link, will get the opportunity to win some stuff from my stash!!! Off to choose what in a moment...

I am honoured, pleased and surprised still to be going strong with the TIO challenge, after all the problems over the winter, but I hope it goes from strength to strength, as many people say it is a source of inspriation to them... Thanks for the support over the months guys, and don't forget to join in so you can win the blog candy...

I used grunge paper, from Tim Holtz, a swirl foam stamp (new to me but I like the way they print out) from QVC, and good old distress inks and an application  tool., in soot, peeled paint and sapphire blue. I swirled some cosmic shimmer power over, in gold, and the perfect peals that came in the QVC kit from Tim Holtz. It was all stamped and coloured over crackle paint, which I had never used before. The small tag was a "fragment", coloured with alcohol inks and stamped with the same image, then embossed... Thanks for looking, and don't forget to look out for the blog candy!!!
