Speedy the Cat Challenge #68

Use a distressed edge

Aug 13- distressed
Carol wanted us to use a distressed edge.  It adds a bit of texture to a card when you do that and just helps things not look so flat.  I like to do this occasionally and was glad for the challenge.  This is a new set by Mark’s Finest Papers and Stamps.  The entire set called Fun on the Farm is adorable. I hand cut the grass strip and used a bit of raffia for the “hay” I cut the curve on the cow’s mouth to give her a bit of an opening where I stuffed a bit of hay.  (tee-hee) I stamped her twice and cut the head out, then outlined the underside edge with a stencil tool to give the head a bit more dimension.  if you click on the image you will be able to see this better. The clouds are die cut stencils from Nestabilities which I placed on a strip of blue that i distressed with the edge of a scissors. The paper and ribbon came from a rummage sale. (love when that happens) Winking smile
