Hi there! Good morning and Happy Sunday to you!
It's time for this week's Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge #150!
"And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom..."
Use torn paper somewhere on your card. Just tear it with your fingers. It must be torn and not cut.
Inspired Stamps is offering a $15 gift certificate to our winner!
I had SO much fun with this card! When I got this brand new stamp set, Beach Bums by There She Goes, I thought I would do a card with a scene like this. So when I saw that this week's SSIC challenge was to use torn paper, I knew it was perfect for my sand! I used some self-adhesive cork and tore it with my fingers. Tearing it gave it that rough, not-perfect look that is perfect for sand! I sponged the background of my image to make a sky and colored and cut out the palm tree and crab to make a little scene. They are popped up with foam dots. The patterned paper - Snorkel by Como Cricket - is OLD. I dug it way out of the bottom of my patterned paper bin. I stamped the sentiment on a flag and attached it to my scene. The yellow strip of paper was embossed with the Cuttlebug Polka Dots embossing folder for a little texture. I finished my card off with some white cotton twill ribbon and a few rhinestones.
My card layout is the sketch from this week's There She Goes Challenge #166. It's a great sketch!! Pin it!
