The challenge this week from DCM was set by Keryn and is to make "a card for any season, any holiday, any occasion but you need to use either a fingernail, curled edges, sandpaper, tearing, anything you like really as long as looks like it's had a fair bit or wear and tear". I used papers from "Paper Blossom" which is available on the Funky Hand website as a download. I distressed the backing paper with an emery board which I think works just as well as some of the fancy tools and then inked the edges with a brown inkpad. Tore a strip of pink and then cut out the letters from the Paper Blossom alphabet and placed them alternately on little torn strips of white card. Cut out a flower from another paper with Cricut George and Basic Shapes inked the edges and finished with an antique looking brad. Hope it looks suitably shabby but chic.
And using the same papers a tag for the "Tag You're It" Challenge.
I have a whole box of slide mounts but it's sods law that when you need them you can't find them. I did find one in the bottom of a drawer but it was a bit damaged so I cut in two ...so hope this still counts girls.
