Challenge 58...Distressing Techniques

Good morning crafters and welcome to another Cupcake Craft Challenge! Big thanks to everyone who entered last weeks pearls and swirls challenge, we loved that so many of you played along with us last week and there were some incredibly pretty...pearly...swirly creations when we visited your blogs... we are so lucky to have such talented crafters enter our challenges and we thank you for joining us each week!

We are also sorry to have to say goodbye to design team member Lisa this week and we hope that you will join us in wishing her well for the future...thank you Lisa for your contribution to the Cupcake DT, it has been lovely working with you!

Don't forget to pop back later to see who has been chosen for the Top 5 and to see who has won the $25 scholarship towards a class of their choice from last weeks sponsor...My Creative Classroom


Now it's time to move onto this weeks challenge which is...

We would love to see your torn edges, sanding or sponging! Whatever technique you choose to create a distressed look to your project, we want to see it!
