…and thinking I had posted this card earlier for the challenge over at Stamping 411. Proves I have not had a very good day & need to get to bed.
Today’s sketch uses a simple technique that we sometimes forget about — Tearing! Tearing your cardstock or DSP adds great interest and texture and is a fast, easy and very inexpensive way to dress up a card or project!
1.Layer One — Cardbase cut at 5.5 x 8.5″, scored and folded
2.Layer Two — Cardstock cut at 4 x 5.25″
3.Layer Three — Cardstock of DSP cut at 4″ wide and torn at approximately 4″
4.Layer Four — DSP cut at 2.5 x 3.5″
5.Layer Five — Cardstock cut at 2.25 x 3.25″
For this card I pulled out my DSP Woodand Park, but wanting to use a pattern that I hadn’t used previously. That is the best thing about the DSP from SU®, it is double-sided. I love tearing, but am always very hesitant on tearing DSP, especially the ones you love so much, although once I start, there is no holding me back.
I stamped my image using Chocolate Chip Ink onto Watercolour Paper, grabbed my Aqua Painter & Garden Green Ink, & proceeded to colour the image. I then stamped a flower image directly onto Watercolour Paper using Chocolate Chip Ink. Cut it out & again coloured the image with Garden Green Ink & Aqua Painter. I adhered it to the card using SU Dimensionals. I used Chunky Sprinkles for the centre of the flower.
