Distress Ripping With Lovely Friends & Touches of Texture

Now that's an odd sounding title for a Blog post, but I didn't know how else to describe the technique I applied to this card.

So distressed ripping it is !

Its been a while since I made a card using this technique.

I love how this turned out.  I think it has a bit of vintage going on there too.

Usually I am ultra careful in handling my precious card stock, so it was kind of liberating just ripping away at the edge of it, and then distressing the card even further using a dauber to apply ink to the torn and distressed edges.

The Lovely Friends stamp set/bundle is just lovely.  I love the huge sentiment which dominates the front of the card.  And it's true isn't it ? Good friends are hard to find, so hang on to them and let them know how much they mean.

I did use a stamp positioner for the large sentiment and re-stamped it about three times before I got the depth I was aiming for.

I also used Touches of Texture around the edges, opting to use the lacy stamp, and I also added some splatters using the stamp on/stamp off technique, so that just a touch of the Soft Sky shows up.

I used Very Vanilla and Soft Sky with a little touch of gold heat embossing for this project and finished with a touch of lace trim.

Its a 6 x 6 inch card base with layers and I am pretty happy with how it turned out.

Hope you like it too.

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope that you pop back again soon.

Have a great weekend.
