JAI79 - Just Add Tearing/Distressing

Tearing and Distressing were among my first favorite techniques, partly because they could add a lot of texture and interest without all the fancy tools. But as I started to collect all the tools of the trade, I kind of forgot to come back to my tried and true basics.

Fortunately, Just Add Ink has challenged me to do just that! And although I often like to combine a sketch, a color challenge and sometimes a theme challenge like this, I really wanted to use the Seasons of Friendship tree, which is too big for most sketches, and I knew exactly what colors I wanted. So, here it is!


  1. Very lovely - I love the bright buttons. Chantell

  2. Love how the red of the buttons and bright yellow of the butterfly and bird pop off your wonderfully vintagey distressed background Anjii. Thanks for playing at Just Add Ink.

  3. Gorgeous!! I love this stamp set, and what you've done with it.
