Yup, it's true! Rogue Redhead Designs is going to sponsor Gingersnap Creations all through the cool month of February! GC's theme is "Telling It Like It Is" and it will be focusing on faux techniques. Sounds like amazing fun, doesn't it?
Well, my fun lady from the Just Sayin' plate thinks so even if she doesn't look like it! She's stating her current mood du jour on this card. We've all had those days where it seems that nothing we try is going to work out no matter what.
To create this card, I've used Carole Burrage's Faux Torn Mosaic technique which I learned on the fabulous Splitcoast Stampers site. It was really fun although lots of inking. I went with more pink ink for the edges instead of nice browns - must be the rogue in me. I think it turned out fab!
