RSCC #16

I finally made some time to stamp today and was inspired by Dawn's raspberry suite color challenge .

The frayed paper technique was inspired directly from my sweet mom, who used to make gorgeous coats called "fancy rags." She would cut fabric for hours, just like this and sew them onto a lined coat/jacket that she made. Then, after it was all sewn all, she'd throw it in the washer and out would come some beautiful rag jackets. I tried to replicate this technique with paper. I've actually made a couple of other cards using this technique, which I'll post soon.

Card deets:
Stamps: Flower from Inkadinkadoo's Garden Delight set, sentiment from CDstamps' Sept 2008 Stamp of the Month
Paper: Kraft, SU Chocolate Chip, SU orange/gold
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Accessories: cream twill, brown button, cream hemp thread, dimensionals

Happy stamping!
