When I saw CAS-ual Fridays So Torn Challenge I immediately thought of a leaf with fall colours. I'm really not sure why, it's just one of those things that can't be explained. So I set about trying to figure out how to use something torn on my card. Very hard for someone who likes everything to be linear.
I lopped off 0.75" from my card front and attached 3 layers of torn paper to take its place. My favourite Maple Leaf was stamped with Distress Inks and to frame the leaf I added Versamark to the edges of the square, sprinkled on embossing powder and heat set it. A quick and easy way to add some colour and texture without using paper.
I'm also entering this card for Simon Says Thinking of You/Sympathy Challenge. There's still time to play and enter both challenges!
Wishing you an inky day!
