Tear it Up!



Welcome to my blog today and today's Stampin' Sisters in Christ stamping challenge! This week's hostess is Peggysue!
The verse:
Matthew 27:51
"The veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom."

The challenge: Use torn paper technique (just tear your paper with your fingers and use it somehow on your card, but it must be torn, not cut.)
This week's sponsor is a 15.00 g.c. for Inspired Stamps. They have a great selection of stamps!

My card: I haven't torn paper in so long...it felt kind of strange...but once I added some antiquing with ink, I liked the overall effect much better. I used SU! designer paper, Pool party paper, pool party ribbon, Spellbinders Nestabilities, CD embossing folder, ODBD stamp, and tiny blue rhinestones along with TH Ink, a bit of lace and my bow maker.
I always enjoy the Sundaydevotions and look forward on Sunday mornings to reading them along with you. Please visit the SSiC blog and play along with us for the chance to win stamps from Inspired Stamps and even more so, the opportunity to lift up Christ with your beautiful art!
Thanks so much for stopping by!

  2. Traci - I love the verse you put not he front of your card and I really like that you stamped it in a light color. Makes it look a little vintage. The papers are great and tearing is so much fun don't you think?
    Blessings,
    Michelle
