Challenge 106 - Distress it

For challenge 106 we have the talented Lizzy Love from

Prize: 3 images from the store
Theme: Distress it

We were generously given an image to work with and I got "Veggie Veronica".  As soon as I saw the image I knew what I wanted to do.  I used Craftartist to find some orange paper and put some bats all over it then scored it using my hougie board, love this board for scoring and it's big enough to work off too.  I made a little bag to hold some sweets and then made a tag to go on the front of it.  The tag is cut with my Tonic art nouveau laying dies and attached with a tiny purple brad. The image was coloured using spectrum noir pens.  The tag and the edges of the box were distressed with scissors and a nail file.  The words around the edge say "There's nothing more distressing than exercise, so please pass the treats".

Now you've seen my interpretation of the theme hop over to the challenge and show us your distressed projects.  It can be anything, have you distressed your drawers lately take a picture and show us.
