Karen's Doodles Challenge 33 - Distress It!

This week our hostess, Anne at Karen's Doodles Challenge blog and she has given us a theme challenge...

Distress It

For my card, I am using Karen's new image called Grandma Turkey  I sized the image then printed it onto Cryogen paper with my inkjet printer.  Copics used:
Grandma - E000, E00
Hair - W1, W3
Eyes - E35
Lips - R83
Dress - YG93, YR23
Apron - E51
Shoes - YG93, W5
Turkey - E21, E33
Platter - C1, C2

I added Vintage Photo Distress ink around the image before removing it from the die.  The DP is Debbie Mumm, I also distressed it's edges.  I colored the ribbon and gems to match with my Copic markers.  Finished size is 5.5" square.
