Distressed Burt with buttons

It has taken me ages to make this card. Not because it is particularly good, but because I have had loads of other things to do and so have been a bit start-stop with the crafting. I have used the fab 'Bert the Owl' from Pollycraft (a freebie a few months ago), coloured with PMs, and some We are Memory Keepers papers which I like. I am not so sure I am happy with the finished product- the ink distressing didn't go as I had planned. I really must get a glass mat and some proper distress inks instead of trying to improvise. I will enter the card into this weeks Passion for Promarkers challenge (distressing) and I love Promarkers challenge (buttons- and yes I have been extravagant and used 5).

Or a non stick mat from the kitchen (that's what I use). Before I bought distress inks I used chalk finish inks with some very decent results . . .
GOOD LUCK

A lovely card Louise, great layering.
I got 1 of those non stick baking sheets from poundland, it's just like the craft mats used for distressing.
