Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge--Distress it

Oh, I am in love, the challenge this week at Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge is Distress it. Anyone who knows me knows that I love Vintage and so this is right up my alley.  I had a special gift to make and decided to make a piece of framed art and not card.  I used the new Adventure Guy:

This was perfect to symbolize all of the memories and treasures of adventures new and old . The metal tag which, of course, would not photograph well, says Enjoy the Journey.  Love all of the, Tim Holtz, embellishments that always add so much to the distress, antique feel of my creation.  A really fun size to work with, The frame is 8X10 so I enlarged the image as big as I could and still managed to keep the print image from distorting the pixels at about a 5x7 printed image...pretty cool huh!

 Hope my friend likes it.

Be sure to drop by the Challenge blog and check out what the rest of the DT has created and then join the challenge for a chance to win a Mo's Image. Mo has some new images that are just too cute so be sure to check them out.

Thanks for stopping by, and have a wonderful creative day.
