That's Torn It!

The theme for this week's Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge is "distressed/torn edges".  I had been thinking for a while about making something with a very restricted colour palette, so decided to do that with this funky/retro themed project!

I started off by stamping the circles in Bundled Sage distress ink, and then overstamping in black to give a slightly blurred effect.  The circles were masked off and the rays were stamped with Faded Jeans distress ink.  Finally the central panel was edged with more bundled sage, applied with an ink blending tool.  The mat was cut from white card and coloured in the same way.  The barcode stripes were stamped on white card with Faded Jeans ink and then edged with Bundled Sage.  The strip mat was coloured with Faded Jeans, applied direct to the card and then torn down each side.

Our ever-generous sponsor Simon Says Stamp is offering a $50 gift voucher as the prize again this week! The winner will be chosen at random from those who enter the challenge, so why not give it a try? At the very least why not head over to the Challenge Blog to see how the other members of the design team have interpreted this weeks theme! :)

Dan, this retro piece is just wonderful! Made me want to pull out my 1970s music and start groovin' out. :) You always get the most intense color! <3 Candy
