Differently Distressed

I enjoy working with the designs from CSDesigns.

The challenge at Craft your Passion Challenges caught my eye : Torn or Distressed edges.
I love doing both, so I had to whip up a card today to still enter the challenge.

Distress always makes me think of vintage, and how much more vintage can you go than a mummy?

So here is my torn and distressed edges card:

I used the Solitaire Mummified / Ribbons to create my card. I used some kraft paper that I torn and crumpled The card is kraft board as well. Gold paper torn is strips was used as a second layer. I used various stamp pads to colour and distress the card. Pencils and soft pastel was used to colour the image & sentiment. My gelly roll pen added the final bit of glamour to the mummy. The sentiment is also from CSDesigns.

The first part of the current challenge at ArtWithNoBoundaries is Anything Goes. I'm adding my card for some more inspiration from the DT, hope it inspires you!
