Out of the Box with Stampin'Up! Studio Sketches

Today's project was created for the Color Challenge over at Splitcoast Stampers, Concord Crush, Daffodil Delight, and Pear Pizzazz. I also used this weeks sketch challenge from Mojo Monday.

So you may be wondering how I came up with ...this...creation! I was trying to think "artsy", out of the box. When I started I had my layers straight and clean and then... something came over me telling me to just go for it and crumple the daylights out of the paper! Oh, it wasn't easy to take the plunge; I sat there fretting for a while over whether to mess up my clean paper!
I started with crumpling and tearing which led to sponging which led to distressing which ended with my card!

I have to say I had a blast roughing up my project! Good or bad I had fun!
