I'm Not Sure Who Was More Distressed?

Tuesdays Sketch with a Twist from Marks Finest Paper’s a
Hendrich Co. The twist was “distressing” the card.
You try and distress their paper, I wet it, crumbled it, took the edge of a streak knife to it, used a course emory board,  re-sprayed it with water and tea stain, dropped stain onto it and finally embossed it.
After 24 hours of doing that I put the distress tool on my next order.
However I was more distressed than the card.
I remembered when our basement flooded in Osgoode and the steamer trunk and all our valuable papers got soaked. It looked like the wet letters had a shadow so I double stamped the words and sentiments trying to get that effect. I may need more practises
I will enter this card into these challenges….

I use a pair of scissors to distress with. I am amazed at what all your paper had gone through- it looks fabulous.
