Distressed at Just for Fun

The challenge at Just for Fun this week to use distressing techniques on a male project. It is appropriate to have 'distress' as a challenge cause it is going to be the last one at JFF :(. I am sure most of us have so looked forward to the challenges there each week since it started up-I know I have and will miss them so much. I have learnt such a lot from the team and the other people who have posted such amazing project ideas.

This is a male card but the Good Luck and the Love are aimed at everyone who has made JFF a lovely place to visit.

I used Von's brayer tutorial to make the background with distressed inks then distressed the edges with various colours. I even distressed the wooden accents. I am going to pin this card onto my wall so I can think of Just for Fun whenever I look at it.

It has been Fun, thank you and I hope to be able to keep in touch with the marvelous people I have met while I have been here.


  1. Thank you Chrissie for being with us from the start and never failing to take up the challenge :)
    So pleased you liked the mono print and what a fab farewell card you have made for the last challenge at Just for Fun
    Hugs Von x♥x

  2. Bless you and thank you for all the lovely things you have to say about JFF. Your support and imaginative projects week after week have been a delight to come and see. Blogland is great for helping us all to stay in touch and as a follower I'm looking forward to seeing more of your creativity.

  4. Gorgeous card , i love those colours they are fab. I really like that rubber stamped car image too, it reminds me of John Lennons car :-)

  5. Oh Chrissie, I hope that we did not "Distress" you too much this week. The subject was not intended to be a finale. Just happened that way.
    What a super background you have made and what thought provoking images you have used. I hope we don't lose touch with one another, I have so enjoyed seeing all the inspiring projects you have come up with along the way and I look forward to seeing you come up with many many more. It's only an Au Revoir, I hope!
    Love, Neet xx
