Distressed Tilda

Make her Distressed looking, a little rough around the edges, a bit of
So stay clear of these cute pastel colours if you can help it and get
down and dirty with tilda!

For my distressed Tilda card I used a K&Co patterned paper for the background and I sanded it all over and then rubbed over a distress ink pad.
The "frame" is made of a patterned vellum which I again sanded and rubbed the distress ink pad over. For the middle aperture I ripped the opening and rubbed the ink pad over and folded some little pieces back. I then sanded some leaf brads to make them look older. I also rubbed the ink over the ribbon. For the main image. I took a square of watercolour paper and brushed over it with a distress ink and water, let it dry and then sponged over another colour of distress ink. Tilda was also watercoloured in with distress inks. I then used the around the block tape writer for the sentiment.
