Distressing - the card and me!!

I've had a distressing evening in my craft room - you can see the result below.....



I've just got the hang of using distress inks around the edge of my papers and images, can do the sandpaper bit but using the blade of the scissors filled me with dread..... I came out in a hot sweat but had to give it a go as per the tutorial at Just Magnolia this week.
Image was RAK, coloured with copics as per the colours this week at Copic Colour challenge and layout is from Sketch & Stash challenge. Papers are old stash, Papermania I think and textured card is DCWV.

Should be off to bed now but maybe I could fit a bit more colouring in before I go...
Have a good weekend whatever you are up to, wish I was off up to the NEC but gotta get my eyes tested, getting to that funny age, and then bathroom shopping :-(
Still there's always Sunday....

this is a gorgeous card, you've done distressing really well - kept it nice and vibrant too which I don't think is an easy thing to achieve
