Stressed or Distressed?

Well here I am again with another Distressed card for the Phindy's Place Challenge Blog. I wasn't sure I was going to make it, but when I got to TM this afternoon, I couldn't resist. I have to say this one was easier than the first. After all who doesn't enjoy tearing paper and not worrying about whether you've cut it straight or not.

This adorable image from the Phindy's Place Store is called Love Cycle. I've colored her with copics.

The papers are a from a free kit from Summer Driggs Summer Time Designs called the Happy Mother's Day Kit. The tag that the image is mounted on is a part of the kit.  The ragged lace rose was from a some roses that were given to my by a friend. I free hand cut the leaves, crumpled them to make the look distressed.

The sentiment is from Create with TLC. I'm not sure it's still there or not, but there are new ones every day.


  1. Love your torn papers and the colours you used here, very shabby chic

  2. This is BEAUTIFUL! Love the pink and green and the lovely shabby flower. Perfect sentiment with her, too. You know it's funny, I love the look of torn and inked edges, but hate to do it, lol. It seems wrong for me to tear something, need to get over that, cause it's a great effect. So glad you had time for a second fabulous creation this week.

  3. Another beauty, Shirley. One of my fav color combos, too!
