Challenge #37 - Distressing

Hello and welcome to a new Phindy's Place Challenge. Wow, what a response we had to the first open challenge - over 150 entries! Be sure to drop by later in the weekend to see who won the prize and the Pick of the Week.  This week's challenge is Distressing.  You can use Distress Inks, distress paper edges, tear paper, interpret it your way, I can't wait to see your entries! 

Please take a moment to check out the rules:  you may use any image, however we love to see entries using Phindy's Place images and they will get two chances at winning the draw.  Maximum 3 entries per person please.  The winner of the Challenge will be chosen by and will receive an $8 Gift Certificate to the Phindy's Place store.  The Pick of the Week wins a 20% off voucher for the Phindy's Place store. Don't forget that once a month we will choose an overall winner from the weekly winners and they will be offered a Guest position on the DT - and of course a free image from Phindy's Place to use for that week's challenge!

Here are some delectable distressed projects for your inspiration from the Design Team:
