QUEEN FOR A WEEK

Happy Monday Everyone :)
Is anyone looking for some help to get their creative juices flowing ? Well then, you might try heading over to the Paper Playtime Challenge Blog. This week I'll be the GUEST QUEEN and I'm very honored  :) My card today represents the theme for the week "MISS YOU".  I was sooo lucky to have won these Market Street Stamps at one of Peachy Keen's recent Blog Hops, gotta love hops :)  I was trying to give an old weathered tin tile look to my card by using the an embossing folder on the brown craft paper and inking around the edges. The craft paper absorbed the ink in sort of a blotchy way, sort of like rusting. What do you think? Did I pull it off? I used SU Markers to color in the image using the water coloring technique, BTW, one of my favorite ways to color).
Hope you all enjoy it and decide to hop on over and participate in the CHALLENGE :)  
Pin It!
