Challenge #81 - Distressing

I am Berni, a DT member, and I am hosting this challenge
 "Distressing."  
You ask yourself, what is distressing? Whatever the object, the finish is intentionally destroyed or manipulated to look less than perfect, such as with sandpaper. I am big fan of Tim Holtz the master in distressing with his fabulous projects worldwide. I created my card with the Tim Holtz brick embossing folder and sanded over the embossing, and then colored the DS4J image ("Buster") with Tim Holtz Distress Markers.
We are so excited to see your fabulous projects. The challenge starts today and ends on Tuesday 11 December. We would prefer for you to use a DS4J image from the store, but not necessary. You will have an edge for the prize drawing if you do. Remember to link your projects in the linky below.
The challenge runs from Wednesday Nov. 26th November until 11 December.
 We look forward to seeing your creations. Remember to link your projects up in the linky below.

Don't forget you must use a digital stamp or rubber stamp!

Team "A" members have created these stunning cards to inspire you!
ALL the images used by the DT are available in the STORE

ALEX (digistamp = "Bicycle")

ANGELA (digistamp = "3 Mielies en 'n pampoen")

ANTOINETTE (digistamp = "Retail therapy" and "Sisters sentiment")
