I had two inspiring thoughts when I made my card.
My first thought went immediately to the Tim Holtz distress inks that I love to use to create masked backgrounds. (A few spritzes of water always add a little interest, too!)
I also thought about an early morning incident that occurred a few days ago between my neighbor's dog and a skunk...that poor dog was definitely in distress! Although I didn't see exactly what happened, I sure heard that poor dog barking frantically and I could smell the results when I went out to take the kids to school. Phew!
Since our sponsor this week is Lawn Fawn, I played with a cute set that was included in a recent order.
I can't wait to see how you interpret DISTRESS in your clean and simple card creations! Be sure to link up your card by noon on Monday (Central time). While you're at it, check out the blogs of our guest designer and design team for more inspiration!
