Double Monday again!

Hi everyone and welcome to another week of challenges!

Today I managed to combine two of my favourite challenges again - Simon Says show us distressed/ torn edges - and Linda for the new Grungy Monday sends us to this great Tim technique from 2008 -

I made a card and have some torn and some distressed edges!

I don't have a craft iron so have to remember to turn the steam setting off on my domestic one!!

For the Grungy Monday challenge, I used the Wendy stars for the technique with bundled sage ink, and victorian velvet, stormy sky and crushed olive for the tag.

To meet the Simon Says challenge, I distressed the edges of the tag with my tonic distresser and layered it on some torn Kraft paper on a blank card.



Make sure you check out both blogs for some amazing talent and at Simon Says, the chance to win  a fab prize.
