The increasingly inky and painty ramblings of a stampaholic, whilst kneeling on the floor. Yes, my knees do protest!

Sunday Stampers - Rip it Up
Sunday Stampers today is going back to the 80s with Hels' inspiration coming from a song I didn't actually remember, "rip it up and start again" till I Googled it. Anyhow, the theme is Ripped/Torn so I have done just that for this card.
I used as my starting point the remains of the sheet of Crafty Individuals paper I used to cover the numbers in my Tag Tuesday tag last week.
I ripped the paper using a "grip and rip" ruler I bought - I think at Newbury LAST July and which I've never used before.... which has serrated deckle edges - into strips. I took another of my fave cream coloured scalloped edged cards and smooshed a bit of shabby shutters DI across, stamped the script stamp across the corners of the card using forest moss DI and then placed the strips until I was happy with the pattern and then stuck them with a glue stick. I had a couple of the large Wendy V butterflies stamped on some white card but it was too stark so I coloured that with scattered straw DI and cut them out, and glued them down the middle only so I could bend the wings. I added some ordinary stickles glue (star dust) along the butterfly bodies where it's picked up the yellow ink below.
I know that the bottom strip is upside down (you can tell I never mastered reading music!!) but i was going for the ways the colours had to overlap, not the pattern on the paper.....
Ok, I am off out now to pick up the photos I took at Kew (yes, I know, Kew again!) yesterday - but it was a glorious morning so hopefully they'll be good - catch them on my other blog later! Give me a couple of hours!
