We are Neet and Wendy and we would like to welcome you to our fortnightly challenge, ‘Artful Times’, where we are offering a variety of challenges to inspire you to create in whichever style or medium of crafting you enjoy. You never know, we might even inspire you to create something out of your comfort zone and try out something new.

Yes like all challenge sites we have rules and guidelines. We hope you will read and follow them, we have Oyster Stamps as our sponsor, and of course, a winner and runner up will be chosen each month. We may also have the occasional guest designer.

Challenge #40 - Feeling Distressed

On our last challenge two entries both exceeded the maximum number of entries we stipulate in our Rules and Guidelines at the top of our blog.  When I commented that I should not be commenting (see top post) both bloggers asked me why.  We will not be commenting at all on blogs that do not fully meet the criteria in future.  Neet

Lovely to see all your autumnal colours over the last couple of weeks, it really is getting well and truly into autumn now, but I have to say I do like this time of year, mainly due to the wonderful browns, yellows and oranges on the trees, the woods we got to look spectacular.

But, we are moving on this week to anything distressed, whether that be a shabby chic looks, a grungy distressed look, or the materials you've used, it's entirely up to you.

Both Neet and I made tags for this challenge.



Let's see how distressed you can get!!!

One of my "crafts" is photography and digital photomanipulation. I hope my piece "Fairy Couch" will fit your contest rules. If not, I understand.

I am sorry you feel that way Neet, I innocently asked, I had forgotten the rule on number of challenges I could enter, and quite honestly we had that on the Quirky blog and dropped it in the end. Personally I have a terrible memory, and after I have entered might then see another challenge and enter that, I don't enter vast numbers of challenges like some folks, I choose carefully to see that I fit the criteria, and maybe you should revise the number upwards a little. it is a bit harsh as it stands.
