Just Add Ink challenge 79 - Just Add Tearing/Distressing

LOVING Just Add Ink's challenge this week - tearing up stuff is the one thing I love to do when creating, so the challenge is right up my alley!

The card and main mat are Crumb Cake on Crumb Cake - the mat being torn, polka-dot embossed through the Big Shot, heavily sponged in Crumb Cake and Soft Suede and splattered with Crumb Cake marker and a colour spritzer (can you tell I like Crumb Cake??).

The trims are Cherry Cobbler and Soft Suede card and Patterns Stack.  The image is white embossed Elements of Style on a Crumb Cake card piece, again heavily sponged over the image.  The image mat is Soft Suede, distressed with a sanding block and sponged in Soft Suede.

Finished off with a Cherry Cobbler Scallop punch flower with a faux suede effect and centred with a Boho Blossoms punched centre in So Saffron Patterns Stack, and a silver brad.  Phew!
