Crumpled Love

I found a lovely tutorial at Clarity Stamps for making a fabulous backgrounds, it's well worth a visit. I didn't have a double sided adhesive so I simplified it a bit.

I crumpled a piece of tissue paper and distressed it with distress inks and golden Versa Color. The more edges the more coloured lines you get. I stamped the image on the tissue paper with Versa Fine and stuck a broad clear tape piece over it. The colouring of the roses was made from the reverse side with markers and some more distress inks were added for some depth. The flowers were cut with TH tattered florals die from the tissue leftovers. Oh, I almost forgot, the stamp is a Penny Black from the Clearly in love set.

I'm entering:

I wish you'll be near your loved ones this evening!
