That's torn it

It's DCM day and this week Dawn is asking us to "tear it up" - add something ripped or torn to your project.

I still have pages from an ephemera pack I bought ages ago from a local outfit that put them together from books that were beyond rescue. I tore a strip from a page featuring a children's story and used it to anchor the stamped image. I used a charcoal pencil to smudge underneath it to give it a bit more heft.

It's ages since I used bubble wrap to stamp with - I thought it would suit the style here and used the same ink to add a touch of colour to the balloon.

Tim Holtz Distress ink by Ranger (Tumbled Glass)

Love the little piece of torn book, great element to use. I also like the effect you made stamping with bubble wrap. Got to try this.

Fab! I looks so clean and simple at first sight, yet there's quite a bit going on at a closer look. The colours are lovely, too.
