Stampin' Up! Awesomely Artistic card with faux tearing

Stampin' Up! Awesomely Artistic card, faux tearing

I wanted the keep the colours simple on this card as there is quite a lot going on with the stamps and punches. I've used just two colours - Mint Macaron and Tip Top Taupe, with the design being stamped on to Very Vanilla card stock.

The stamp set I've used is Awesomely Artistic (apart from the senitment). I love the dragonfly, which I cut out to add some depth to the card.

Stampin' Up! Awesomely Artistic

The technique I've used is called Faux Tearing - I tore a piece of scrap card and lay it on the Very Vanilla card stock about half way across, then sponged on some Tip Top Taupe to create a torn edge look. Then I stamped the design, and added the sentiment and decoration on the blank piece of card.

Quite effective I think. 

Look out for more stamping techniques in posts over the next couple of months.
