BSS-MONDAY CHALLENGE-USED TORN PAPER

Hi. Happy Monday! It's the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Monday Challenge. Today's challenge is to use torn paper on your card. I had this beautiful cherry paper from Magnolia and believe me it was hard to rip it! But, once I got going I liked the results. I torn the paper randomly and distressed it with distress ink by ranger. I layered it on my card. I chose to make the card out of the same paper, but you could use different papers as well for a different look. I rolled the edges in places and in others, I pinched the edges up with my finger. The cherry frame is by Hero Arts. Tilda is sitting pretty in her cherry dress up top. Words are My Sentiments Exactly. Leaves are by Prima and I used little heart shaped buttons. The little gingham bows are by Maya Road. Pearls are Kaiser. I used diamond glaze on the buttons and the large cherries. Hope you have time to try this technique, it's kind of therapeutic! Have a great Monday. Until tomorrow...........

Hahahaha, yes, kind of therapeutic indeed!! First, you get to rip, then possibly some sanding, definitely some distressing and finish with curling and viola, instant therapy session for much much less, and I do love a bargain, haha!! Sue, your card is gorgeous. It is very cherry nice. One of those papers you want to keep around to pet now and then instead of use, but I love what you've done with it. Tilda looks fantastic and the colours are wonderful!!

Love that you sat her on the torn paper how creative. Had a minute as the boys leave for hockey and thought I would look around. All the cards are just awesome. Happy Birthday! See ya soon.
