This card is rather distressed on the edges (read: trés tattered) and the background paper is actually crumpled which was a surprise artistic contribution from my cheeky 22 month old son, that I decided to run with despite its vastly altered and less than pristine state, as it worked with the overly torn edges of the card or so I thought at the time. Plus, I had already inked up that bit of cardstock to within an inch of it's life and didn't fancy my chances of being able to recapture the same sort of attitude that that piece had if I did it all over again. Not to mention the window on my available crafting time was rapidly starting to close and I knew there was every chance I wouldn't be able to get back to the papercrafting that I love until some time further down the track. You know what that's all about now don't you?
So without further ado, let me introduce you to the unwittingly collaborative card that I have come to cherish:
