Here is the card that I created for the challenge...
The background was created using a stencil and Modelling Paste. A really important tip here is to make sure you thoroughly clean your stencil after use or at least put it straight into water - that way the modelling paste will not dry onto the stencil. Once the modelling paste had dried I coloured the background using Broken China and Shabby Shutters distress inks. I used a few torn strips of music paper to add another layer and texture.
The amazing image from Lin Brown for Paper Artsy was stamped onto Smoothy card stock and coloured using Polychromo pencils. It was then cut around and mounted onto the card.
I drew a scribbly line around the card.
To finish I coloured Seam Binding using distress inks. I crumpled the ribbon while it was still wet. When dry, I tied the ribbon around the card.
So - there it is!
