Don't Distress, Tear It Up

One of my favourite techniques is distressing, although I don't use in on every layout or card. I think it really adds another level to the project when the edges of the papers are a bit 'roughed up'. So when I read the "Don't Distress, Tear It Up" challenge for Summerfest at The Scrapping Nook I was quite happy.

I used some left over Cosmo Cricket Snorkel papers to create "You Are A Lifesaver". The background cardstock is inked, then I tore the edges of the CC paper before inking them. The corrugated cardboard was distressed as was the CC tag, which was also inked. With the corrugated cardboard the card also has a bit more dimension.
