All Distressed at Sir Stampalot

Good morning. It is the first of September and that means it is time for another challenge at Sir Stampalot. The theme this month is All Distressed, and I did get rather inky and messy creating this one! My background papers are MME and Cappella, distressed around the edges with my Tim Holtz distressing tool and my scorebug, and of course lots of Walnut stain DI. The script (Hero arts old french writing) was stamped in Tumbled glass DI and the ornate corner (Elusive images) was stamped in Walnut stain DI. The border was made with a Martha Stewart Doily lace punch. My central flower was made using 3 layers of each of 3 shapabilities dies (Flower creations 3) the flourishes are a Marianne Designs die, and the roses and small flowers are woodware and x-cut punches with a few gems.Here is a close-up.

Now on to the prize. Take a look at these lovely goodies.
Fabulous prize, eh? So, if you want to be in with a chance to win this lovely lot, put your thinking caps on a pop over to the Sir Stampalot challenge. There are lots of fab projects this month by my wonderfully talented teamies.
