Distressed Edged Card

I'm entering this card in the Simon Says Stamp and Show your distressed/torn edges challenge.
I coloured a white card blank with milled lavender and old paper distress ink, I used the direct to paper technique. I distressed the edges and then went round them with old paper distress ink. I distressed the images the same way. The lovely lady image is an image from Gecko Galz , I added a little bit of mauve to her dress using a coloured pencil. For the other images I used stamps by Artistic Outpost. The last thing I did was to add a few pearls to the edge of the card.

    On first seeing this card I was sure it was a stamp from The Stampsmith until I read it is from Gecko Galz.
    A gorgeous card.

  2. Great card, lovely contrast with the distressed edge and the pearls! Valerie
