Torn and distressed


Hello folks, it's time for another challenge over at OSAAT and this one is "Torn and/or distressed" I used distressed Core'dination cardstock as a base, then went over it with distress ink. Then I tore and distressed the edges of the step layers and inked the edges of those too. I used the wonderful Beatrice pack by Stamping Dragon Designs, which you can buy at the Stitchy Bear shop. Not only do you get a beautiful selection of papers, you also get two digital stickers to play with!
I made this card with the following challenges in mind:
Monday Lunchtime Sketch - I followed the sketch with the main image step.
Make Up 4 the weekend - use a template, I used one to create the 4x4 step card, and you can find it here.
Crafty Cardmakers - Do something new/challenging. I chose to try and create a completely new style of card for me and made this "step card" (See above for template link)
Incy Wincy - fancy folds
Totally Papercrafts - distressing
