Distressing and paper tearing are some of my favourite techniques. A friend needed a card urgently.... guess they think it takes all of 2 minutes to make a card... it can happen when the creative fairy shines her little wand at you... anyway.... it had to have a guitar on the front and of course as luck would have it... i didn't have a guitar stamp. Stickers to the rescue... Anyway... the client was thrilled with the result and that's all that matters... I am stuck in a rut with colours though.... its brown again!
