Distressed Barn Card

Tearing... inking... tearing... inking....de-stressing! A good card to make after a hard day :)  The torn papers (a stamped backround from Stampin Up and some backround paper) are layered under a torn image from Heartfelt Creations that I colored in with my copic markers.  After all the tearing I used Tim Holtz ink on the edges.   Last, but not least... a piece of jute for the bow. I found the perfect challenge to enter this one in at http://www.alwayscrafting.com/.  The Whimsical Wednesday challenge is all about destessing!  Thanks Stephanie and Margie for the great challenge!

This card is amazing. I am not sure what element it is but something is giving it a 3D look! Totally awesome. I really love the image too, and your coloring..fantastic! Great papers and the distressing really works with the theme and style of this card. The bow is the perfect finishing touch! Great job with the challenge. Thank you for joining us at Whimsical Wednesday this week, hope to see you again soon:)
