Quick Cards

One of my Favorite stamp magazines is Take Ten
Take Ten features Cards that can be created in about 10 minutes
Using the stamp set " Create Tomorrow" from the
I created this card in about ten minutes 
Randomly tear a piece of cardstock
Lightly pull your ink-pad across the torn paper onto your card
If you get lines like you see on the right, then you need to use a lighter hand.
If you want it darker, then just keep going over it, but very lightly

RECIPE:
Fun Stampers Journey Create Tomorrow stamp set
Fun Stampers Journey Blue Lagoon ink, and cardstock
