Just Magnolia Tutorial challenge

Heres my entry into the Just Magnolia Tutorial challenge which is distressing and kim has made a fantasic tutorial so make sure you check it out and all the fantastic DT cards.

Tilda with Roses - coloured with distress inks,tea dye used to distress
Papers - summertime designs (downloaded) tea dye distress ink used to distress edges
flowers and ribbon are from my stash and again i have used tea dye to give them a distressed look
frond branch - martha stewart punch and doily lace - martha stewart punch

Ive used my metal ruler to distress around the edges of the paper and image before using the distress ink and used a nail file to distress the branches and the doily lace border before using ink.

Hope this makes sense as im hopeless at trying to explain things lol
i must remember to put it on the site this time as i forgot to upload my just magnolia on thursday night in the site ooooooppppppzzzz lol
