Shopping Our Stash Challenge - I Made This! Create Your Own Background

Hello, Crafty Peeps!

I have been MIA for a few weeks, but felt well enough today to create a simple card for challenge over at Shopping Our Stash!  This week's challenge is CREATE YOUR OWN BACKGROUND!

I have wanted, for a while,  to try the FAUX TORN PAPER EDGE technique and this challenge seemed like the perfect opportunity.  I also wanted to try coloring a simple embossed image, so I was able to kill two birds with one simple stone.

The base cardstock is Neenah Natural White.  I used the "Faux" torn paper technique and
 stamped with Prima's Epiphany Script Stamp.  The brick wall was created by sponging 
TH Vintage Photo DI over a TCW Mini Bricks Stencil.

I used the Darice "Small Daisy" emobssing folder to create my panel.  The image was colored with
Viva Inka Gold's "Old Gold" and "Greenyellow."  I used "Old Gold" on the petals and then colored over that with my  Marvy LePlume II "No. 13", so the petals have a soft yellow shadow layer.  When the panel was completed, I applied three coats of Modge Podge.  I also applied MP to the card base.

The ribbon is a scrap piece of seam binding that was colored with TH Bundled Sage DI.
The brad is from Leeza Gibbons'  " Wishes & Dreams" collection.
