Too Late...

...and thinking I had posted this card earlier for the challenge over at Stamping 411.  Proves I have not had a very good day & need to get to bed.

Today's sketch uses a simple technique that we sometimes forget about -- Tearing! Tearing your cardstock or DSP adds great interest and texture and is a fast, easy and very inexpensive way to dress up a card or project!

Measurements -
1.Layer One -- Cardbase cut at 5.5 x 8.5", scored and folded
2.Layer Two -- Cardstock cut at 4 x 5.25"
3.Layer Three -- Cardstock of DSP cut at 4" wide and torn at approximately 4"
4.Layer Four -- DSP cut at 2.5 x 3.5"
5.Layer Five -- Cardstock cut at 2.25 x 3.25"

For this card I pulled out my DSP Woodand Park, but wanting to use a pattern that I hadn't used previously.  That is the best thing about the DSP from SU®, it is double-sided.  I love tearing, but am always very hesitant on tearing DSP, especially the ones you love so much, although once I start, there is no holding me back.
I stamped my image using Chocolate Chip Ink onto Watercolour Paper, grabbed my Aqua Painter & Garden Green Ink, & proceeded to colour the image.  I then stamped a flower image directly onto Watercolour Paper using Chocolate Chip Ink.  Cut it out & again coloured the image with Garden Green Ink & Aqua Painter.  I adhered it to the card using SU Dimensionals.  I used Chunky Sprinkles for the centre of the flower.

Supplies -
Stamp Set - Growing Green
Inks - Chocolate Chip, Garden Green
Cardstock - Chocolate chip, Watercolour Paper, Wild Wasabi
DSP - Woodland Park
Accessories - Snail Adhesive, Multipurpose Liquid Glue, Aqua Painter, Chunky Glitter

Until next time, Enjoy!
