Simon Says Torn Edges

Going Rogue on the challenges this week :) Simon Says Stamp and Show has a "Distressed/Torn Edges" Challenge going on. I decided to do both - distress and tear - with my new Floriculture stamps.

I was really happy when I found this cool quote to include with the Floriculture half plate. I framed it using a Technique Junkies technique called...what else?....torn frames.

I sponged distress ink around the edges of both my designer paper and the main image panel. I then colored the main image with copic markers and highlighted around the edges with a yellow copic marker.

Here's the whole card:

Soul Blossoming
Stamps: lily of the valley and quote from Floriculture plate (Rogue Redhead Designs)
Paper: green wood grain (Provocraft?)
Cardstock: Always Artichoke and Whisper White (Stampin Up)
Ink: Rich Cocoa (Memento); Always Artichoke (Stampin Up); various copic markers; Tea Dye (Ranger Distress Ink)
Embellishments: 4 buttons

Let your life bloom!
