Simon Says Stamp - Distressed

Distressed this is me most days and the theme at Simon Says Stamp this week. I used my distress inks, my nail fie, gesso,sticles and alcohol inks to create my distressing.
Firstly I inked up some silkcard with three shades of alcohol ink. I then stamped my beautiful fairy by crafty individuals onto this. I distressed her with a nail file and added some distress ink.
I got some (three different papers) K&co papers and I slapped on some gesso randomly. I let it dry thoroughly. I then added distress ink to two and alcohol ink and distress ink to one other. I then distressed again with my nail file. I bite my nails so I don't use it for them.
I layered up the papers and image and added the swirls and the sentiment ( prima stamps) I then added stickles and my flowers.
Loved this as this is me all over arty and messy. Thanks ever so much SSSC.
