Travelling Light

This is my second post today and totally different from the first one. If you had told me when I first started my blog that I would be distressing and tearing I would have laughed and said no way. However now these are some of my favourite cards, expecially when using one of the gorgeous images from the very talented Krista Smith. This one is called Travel Lite and she is a Simply Sassy stamp from Sugar Nellie. She has been coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers. The paper is from one of my fave pads,Bo Bunny Weekend Market and has suitcases all over it. I have used a Tim Holtz distressing tool and DI Vintage Photo. The grunge postcard is a LOTV stamp, which has been distressed and crumpled. I couldn't decide what to embellish this card with and decided upon stars cut with Nesties and Core'dinations. I wanted to make them more interesting and remembered I had a paper crimper which hasn't seen the light of day for a very very long time. I love the effect so expect to see this being used again now. I added a button from stash to finish it off.
