This card is one of those that seemed to evolve. I was looking through the SCS gallery and saw a number of challenges that I have missed doing lately and was inspired to do something different...so I hunted through my DP's and found this fabulous sheet of images that my Mum actually sent me with some other supplies that she didn't use anymore (Mum is here in September and I know she is going to get addicted to cards so I am using them up so she can't get them back - LOL!! JOKING!!!) Thanks Mum - you're the best!!!
I tore the top of the image and inked it a number if times(okay 3) and then realised it looked like the TLC FAUX Burnt Edges Challenge....so this is the 'Faux' Faux Burnt Edges Technique. It is also for the Inspiration Challenge which you can find here....each week there is so much inspiration...and so many different interpretations of them....I have added the DP, which is recycled from a gorgeous gift bag the perfume by DH gave me for Christmas...I love the colours in it and as it turns out, is perfect for this card....I'm going to have to get some more perfume!! The flower is from a RAK from my friend Pam (aka pam124) I have lightly sponged it and added a gorgeous button that came in a RAK from another dear friend Peggy (aka Marilyn Prestonn). I layered this faux burnt image, slightly angled, on some DP from K&Company's McKenna and added some Kaiser pearls.....oops...I nearly forgot to mention that I embossed, in white, the sentiment from Inque Boutique....I have always loved this sentiment, but never more than on this card...I am very partial to white embossing...especially on vintage.
I was not inspired by one card inparticular in the IC...just ALL of them. Every piece is an inspiration in itself....so I have gone more for the overall style...but I was inspired by Peggy's card:

My stars! Well, look at this jewel once again! I love this image, keep some papers for mum now! I know you will have a ball with your mom.
What features in this. The sentiment is very pretty and discrete. The tearing is perfect and the burnt edges. OOhh you got it girl! To be inspired by other stampers is a privilege I truly appreciate, for I know that I am constantly inspired by yours and others. I can call myself the CASER, and be proud of it. LOL
Now that you would be inspired by my card is a gift Linda. Thanks, you just made my day honey!
Oh, and must not forget to mention how I love the pearls and flower. (wide smile)
