Saturday Surprise - family

This is my entry for Saturday Surprise's challenge 'family'. I decided to go go grunge! To make this card, I distressed some watercolour paper by crumpling it and then applying Distress Ink to emphasise the crumples. I then stamped on the Tim Holtz image and coloured it with watercolour pencils. For the background I layered a large piece of distressed brown card onto a cream A6 card and added a distressed strip of card slightly left of centre on top of it. The image was attached over this. I then added the distressed Tim Holtz Adage Tickets and the flowers for embellishment.
