Well, as is quite typical with me, I probably went overboard with my distressing. I distressed the edges of each piece of cardstock first with my cutter tool. I then created creases in the background cardstock and sanded them just a little bit. Then I distressed by applying Distress Inks with my blending tool. I even added a piece of swirls grungeboard that I distressed with my Distress Inks. Of course, I had to stamp my Rubbernecker collage image before I started any distressing. I put so much work into distressing various sized pieces of this beautiful designer paper (sorry, I don't know the name of it as I bought it at a garage sale last summer) and kept changing my course of action that I decided to also make a bookmark to go with the card. See that designer paper as a back board for my photograph? That is what the designer paper originally looked like before I started distressing it.
Before I applied the flowers, I sprayed Copper Glimmer Mist over the card and bookmark.
