FOSTV is challenging you to "Torn Paper"

There is a whole lot of tearing and distressing going on here in my studio today for the newest challenge this week at


 (Friends of Speedy TV) 

a Mark Hendrich Company.

You are also getting a sneak peek at the

 Happy Anniversary

 (so nice and LARGE - for quick and easy cards like this) 
from the
 November release 

 "Out On The Town 2013"

 stamp set.

I cut a piece of designer paper (Simple Stories - "Documented" 6 x 6) 5 1/4" x 4" and tore the edges all the way around, and inked with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress Stain.

Once the stain was dry, I attached it to my Craft Card Stock 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" base

I cut a piece of scrap Craft Paper at 5 1/4 x 4 and painted the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Paint (Antiqued Bronze)
 I cut another piece of scrap Craft Paper (Colorbok) 5 x 3 3/4 and attached it to the larger (painted) panel with my ATG.  This piece was then attached to the inside of the card with the ATG.
 The tag was cut using a Best of 2007 Images cartridge with my Cricut from scrap Craft paper and "painted" with the same Antiqued Bronze Distress Paint.
 The sentiment was stamped on Craft paper with Color Box Archival Black Pigment ink (and then promptly smeared - why not).
 I had a couple of bronze butterflies  (Special Moments Scrapbooking - Dollar Tree) which I added to the Tag, The sentiment was attached to the tag frame with microdots adhesive.

The tag was attached to the front of the card with foam tape

Thanks so very much for taking the time to check out my creation today, 
 I appreciate it more than you know!
  I would love it if you would become a follower of my blog - and I will be sure to return the favor.

Have a blessed day!
