Torn Wallpaper

Happy Tuesday to everyone, Kirsten here with an extra post. I thought I'd shown you all of the Indigo Blu projects, but then I found this one hiding in blogger land.
It was inspired by a project in the July issue of Craft Stamper magazine. I used mini distress inks - Picked Raspberry, Salty Ocean, Mustard Seed & Spiced Marmalade.
First layer; Mustard Seed & Spiced Marmalade blended onto super smooth white card, flicked with water & dried.
'Elizabeth Bennet' stamped with Onyx Black Versafine ink & heat set with WOW Clear Gloss embossing powder......

Second layer; Super Smooth torn in two, inked with Salty Ocean, water flicked on top, dried. Stamped words from the 'Discover Your Passion' set with permanent blue ink.......
Third layer; Super Smooth torn in two, inked with Picked Raspberry, flicked with water & mix of Salty Ocean & water, dried. Flourish from 'Discover Your Passion' stamped with Picked Raspberry, dried.
Layer assembled & splatters of Tuscan Satin Silkies added (face masked to protect if from splatters).....
The finished card.............

(Quote my own from two different alphabet stamp sets).
Thanks for looking. Until next time, happy crafting.

  3. I do like this one and am going to give the technique a go! Thank you, Jan

  4. I think Blogger is eating my comments on this blog for some odd reason!
