Spoonful Sugar and Friday Sketchers



The challenge this week on spoonful of sugar is to TEAR PAPER!!!! now for anyone who knows me this is my nemesis I just can't do it!!!
My Tim Holt's distressing tool arrived to day so along with this and a fiskers tear edger I have managed to distress this card.
The papers are BG "urban prairie" again they are just beautiful, the gorgeous little sugar nellie image was sent to me by Annie and I have used the Friday Sketchers sketch.
I haven't used these pro-markers colours before as I didn't have any papers to match but I am pleased with them they go well with the papers.

I haven't had time yet to decorate the inside it has taken me 2 hrs so far...it is hard work distressing!!

Thanks for looking Sue :o)

You certainly can tell the time that's gone into this beauty babes! As for ripping, if you are really having problems try running along the edge with a damp paintbrush first. This card is just so stunning - wonderful take on the sketch. Lol Lynn ♥
