Fake It, Distressing and Buttons

Okay I know Ally Pally is on Saturday and I know I really should have waited but I had some Beatrix Potter Stamps arrive in the post today that I had forgot I ordered I hust love it when I get something like that) and I popped out to Costco to stock up on essentials like Loo roll (such an exciting life I lead) when I must have had my radar switched on high cos I found lurking among the shelves a fabulous find - a tote bag type thing filled with 12x12 vintage papers, well over 100 sheets and there all double sided, well could I resist of course not, I'm just gonna have to ration the loo roll now lol.

Anyway I couldnt wait to start inking these little babies up, so the first one I did is the Tailor of Gloucester.

I followed the sketch for Stamp with fun (only when I finished did I realise that the sketch was for last weeks challenge Duh), not that it matters cause the sketch fit really well. My rolled bits of paper are fake material, so if not too late could possibly enter into Papertake Weekly.

coloured image with distress inks and distressed the edges added some buttons ant there you have it.

I just got reminded by my blogger mate Charlie that this card also fits in with the Cupcake Craft Challenge which is distressing and the Whimsy Stamp Challenge which is buttons.

Thanks for looking.
