Make My Monday card for this week

We are still on the Vintage theme again this week, but this week we have been asked to do something either Distressed/Shabby Chic or Torn and Crumpled. So I went for the torn option, well those of you that know me well know I much prefer to rip paper that cut it! This is my card for this challenge.

This will be a bit of a surprise to some as it is not my normal style. To start with I used papers from Papermania's love Jesse Edwards boutique collection that I picked up on my last trip home, a bargain at only £3:99 for a pack of 12x12. I ripped all the edges and inked with Tattered rose distress ink, then put a piece of coredination's card through the big shot with a dots folder, crumpled it up and sanded the top. The stamp used is a Mable Lucie Attwell from the Artistic Stamper that I coloured it in with my water colour pencils, cut it out Go Kreate dies and mounted it on card, added a flower, brad, pin and that's it.

Hope you like it and will join us over at Make My Monday to see what the rest of the team have been up to.

Thanks for reading,

I prefer torn and ripped, too. You did a marvelous job with the card challenge this week. I am always impressed with water color pencils, so know you did a great job.
