Whiff of Joy - Distressing!

Good Morning Everyone, Happy Saturday!!! Today I decided to play along with the Whiff of Joy Challenge Distressing. I colored up this image as soon as I got it ..I just couldn't wait!!! Its been staring at me for over a week now..LOL!!! This week when I saw the challenge distressing I just KNEW it would be perfect for Halloween. For some reason distressing and Halloween go together in my eyes....I hope you enjoy my creation today with this darling Whiff of Joy Little Witch image....

I think i distressed everything I could think of on this creation including adding black distress ink to my once white broom....I even crumpled each layer up to give it a more distressed look. These papers I used are from the Making Memories pack Toil &Trouble. I really love these colors together.

Thanks so much for stopping by today, I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!!!
