Heart Song Inspiration Challenge #14

Hi Everyone!!

Welcome to my Heart Song Inspiration Challenge blog post for this week!
Wow! We had a FABULOUS turn out for our challenge last week! It was so good to see so many beautiful entries!!
This weeks challenge is another fun one "Use Distressing &/or Paint"! I can see lots of creativity going on with this one! (and maybe more than a little MESS lol!)
I hope you can play along too this week. You don't have to use a Heart Song image (but of course we would love you to!). You could win an image of your choice from the Heart Song Designs store!

This week I decided to use the Heart Song Challenge FREEBIE image! You can find it HERE if you'd like to try it out too!
I had a bit of fun painting lightly over some cheap printed paper and then used that as my dp.
I roughed up the edges of my card stock and dp with plain old scissors and inked the edges with Distress Ink.

Hope you like how it turned out...

And another angle...

Thanks for visiting and hope you can play along with us at Heart Song Inspirations this week!
