Sharing some oldies

 Hi there Crafty Friends!

 I'm very slow with my creating at the moment and there's a lot of quality control happening. My waste paper basket is full of rejects! I've mainly been playing with PB Cling stamps and I want the results to be perfect - but I think I need to let that go!  Sometimes I find things I've thrown away and decide I really like it! Does this happen to you? 

I also have a big folder of finished, but never shared stuff, so as it's a new year, I think it's time to whittle that down and share some. So here are a few.

 I noticed on Loll's blog that the the GROUP of SEVEN Card-makers are playing with TORN EDGES, so it's the perfect time to share this card.
I used some of my coveted patterned paper and Pretty Pink Posh stamps to create a colourful scene.

Here is another way to create the look of a TORN EDGE - using a mask a sponging ink and stamping to create a Faux torn edge. 

I used an Old Hero Arts stamp and a New Embossing Powder.
Stamp: Hero Arts Rose 
Edging stamp from Kaisercraft

I'm sharing this at the following:-

I made this card during a class with Online Card Classes. 
I stamped and gold embossed the an old fave Hero Arts background stamp and sponged some inks. 
Then I cut the panel in to strips and randomly arranged them. 
It's a fun technique and was new to me. 
Stamp: Hero Arts Eucalyptus Cling Background
Pinkfresh Studio sentiment
