This is for Misti's HYCCT Challenge "Show Me Your Scars" where we're to tear or distress at least one side of our cards. I know that the scarring left from my mom's mastectomy and failed reconstructive surgery was really hard for her. One of the best things my superhero caregiver dad did for her was to reassure her that he still found her beautiful. I wanted to make scarring beautiful on my card.
I found this leaf on my desk. It is leftover from a technique of pounding flowers/leaves to leave a design from the (blog post about it). Even though this leaf was pounded and gave up most of it's color to the other card, it still looks beautiful. I also tore newsprint Washi tape and distressed my edges to add to the look. I did a tone on tone Weathered bg (still need to buy the In Color ink pads!).
