DCM Day...comes round so quickly!

This week the dare was set by Keryn:

'Hi, it's Keryn here and it's my turn to Distress you all, or at least your cards with this weeks dare. You can make a card for any season, any holiday, any occaision but you need to use either a fingernail, curled edges, sandpaper, tearing, anything you like really as long as looks like it's had a fair bit or wear and tear '

This made me think of tearing mulberry paper, which led me to remember some 'safari' styles that I had been playing with a while ago! Would love to go on a Safari wouldn't you??? Anyway..... the background paper is gorgeous 'Donna' by Melissa Frances, which I got from Bubblyfunk. This paper already has a distressed look but I sanded it even more. The zebra stamp is from a Judikins cube called 'African Safari'. I mounted this onto a couple of layers of torn Mulberry paper. Then added some narrow ribbon and a bead.


Thanks for looking X

Beautiful card Karen, the soft subdued collurs work brilliantly for a distressed theme, don't they?
