I hope I stuck to the brief here.
This little case started out in paper mache brown. I first painted it in blue then distressed it using two different blue distress inks. The paper on the front is from a Tim Holtz range. The letters were cut from kraft card then inked with the blue distress inks before being coated with glossy accents. The pocket came from a pair of my grandaughters jeans and it actually functions.
