Ripped, Torn & Distressed

The Letter
This card is for the Simon Says Stamp and Show Your Distressed/Torn Edges Challenge. Lots of stuff going on here! For the pink background I stamped white card stock with Tattered Rose and some Weathered Wood; spritzed with water; dried with heat tool; sprayed some Glimmer Mist Glacier. Sprayed some Glimmer Mist Coffee Shop on the torn letter under sentiment.

Here's the Techno Babble:
- Tim Holtz stash: Pen Nib, Pen Nib stamp, Trinket Pin "Secrets", Distress Inks: Tattered Rose (my new fav!), Weathered Wood, Vintage Photo, Old Paper. Tissue Tape
- Clip Art images: Postage stamps, Post Card, letters, are all from various free Vintage Clip Art sites. See my sidebar on the right for free vintage clip art sites. You can get Typewriter Head Girl  as a freebie at Pringle Hill Studio.
- Glimmer Mist: Coffee Shop, Glacier. Pink pearl pin, lace from Dollar Store
- Sentiment is from computer; American Typewriter font.
- Versa Fine Vintage Sepia ink
- Stampin' Up! Binding Edge punch

A couple of closeups:
I was going to put an old manual typewriter here, and then I found this lovely lady with one on her head! Didn't notice until after I posted, that she's cutting her hair off with scissors! She must be really upset over the letter!

This was great fun to make! Go have a look at the other entries, hereThanks for stopping by, and leave a word or 2 before departing!

I think you know what video I picked. It's pretty obvious! It's a good one too; in HD. Here's Joe Cocker singing "The Letter"

Sing along if you want to! You know you do!

Hello Debbie! I LOVE your vintage card. Very cool design! I really am in love with the steampunkish image of the girl with the typewriter on her head. Where did you find that? I'd love to have a copy of that! Your layering of papers and ephemera is really good! Beautiful example of torn/distressed edges! Thanks for sharing your art with us at Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge. <3 Candy

This is absolutely fabulous. I love everything about it - great vintage piece with those wonderful distressed layers and images. The color palette you worked with is so perfect for a vintage piece too. The way you merged the new sentiment with the old images is awesome! So glad you joined in our distressing challenge over at Simon Says Stamp and Show this week.
