Vintage Water Can

So I picked up this cute little freebie digistamp at Designed2Delight. I love checking out new digistamp artists, with all the different styles out there, I'm never at a loss for great images.
The background paper is actually a paper bag I got during our last trip to the Tea Room. I loved the bag and knew I could put it to good use. The ribbon is $1 Michael's bin, nesties, and I colored my image with copics and Prisma Premier Marker.

OK, is anyone wondering why my bow is sideways? Well I liked it that way, PLUS, can you see "Curtis Brothers" on the paper? It's an ad for undertakers, caskets, and funerals! I didn't realize that when I cut the paper! So I just HAD to cover it somehow.
Thanks for stopping by. I'm turning in my prospectus today, so I'll be done with school for the summer! Woo-Hoo!!

I'm still new to card making/crafting.. Can I ask how you did that background effect in your image? is that distressing? but how? It looks so clean/neat....?
