DDH Challenge #1 Distressing

Its now the second week of the DDH Challenge, Distressing, for Digi Design House. You still have time to play along this week!

I used the fish from the beautiful set Water Garden. I decided to do a mirror image of one of the fish…. sometimes you just have to swim your own way right? That is one of the neatest things about digi stamps, you can flip them to change it up if you want to! They are colored with Copics and popped up.

The “river” is from a DCWV mat stack and was embossed with the waves fiskar texture plate. The distressing gave it a muddy bank look I think. The cute tag and green PP are from The Angel Company’s Emma SWIC.
