Tattered floral & Isabelline

Hello... I wasn't really meaning to blog this card today, but I haven't quite got round to taking photos of anything else... oops!

This is a bit different for me, because I DO NOT TEAR PAPER!!!  I saw a similar card in a magazine though, and just couldn't resist having a go.

Items Used
Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die
Digi papers - Isabelline - Pink Petticoat
(printed on linen card from Papermill Direct)
Sparkle & Shine (sprayed on the flower) - Crafter's Companion
Large pearl - Bo Bunny Isabella Jewels - MCH
Distress Ink in Frayed Burlap

I'm entering my card for the Tattered Floral challenge on Tim Holtz's blog.

**Enter my candy here**

I'm having a very happy, if busy, week in my craft room - just struggling a bit to fit in blogging... Oh, and I had all my hair cut off too, which always cheers me up... I've now got a very short bob, and I dyed it red too :o)  Just what I needed after all these nasty bugs, which are hopefully going to leave us alone for a while now!

Hope you all have a lovely evening :o)


  1. Gorgeous card Lisa. Love those papers and that flower is lovely. I've seen some of these papers around the blogs, love them but I'm definitely resisting lol!

  2. Hi Lisa,
    What a great effect those papers have when they're torn like that - they look fab with the yellow flower too. Have a lovely evening, Big Hugs, Teresa xxx

  3. This is lovely Lisa. Gorgeous papers and the flower is fab.

  4. I LOVE what you've created here, Lisa! The torn paper gives this card such a FABULOUS look!
    Cutting your hair and changing the color it's such a nice, and easy, way to have a change in your life!

  5. fabulous card Lisa - love your flower - great make with this die xx

  6. Such an effective technique. The papers and gorgeous and your flower looks wonderful. I really must make more use of that die, I keep forgetting I have it!
    Glad you are feeling much better now
    Hugs Sue

  11. Glad you've been having a fun week. Love the effect of the torn papers. x

  12. Oooh love this one Lisa! Gorgeous flower and wonderful colour combo.

    I have to admit to not tearing paper very often at all! The urge does take me sometimes, but I try (and usually succeed) to ignore it!! Feels wrong, somehow, to go ripping up paper.

    Hope you have a good weekend - oooh and would love to see a pic of the new hair.

    This is stunning Lisa! I do tear paper, but it has to be an even type tear - I know it's the OCD in me but I can't just tear a piece without a ruler lol! Really gorgeous creation and well done for pushing yourself out of your comfort zone! Karen x
