Masculine Torn Edges

I made this for a few challenges, including Our Daily Bread Design's Stamping in Time with Betty.
The Assignment: Any ODBD stamps!  (Yay!)
The challenge: The challenge this week was by our challenge host, Randi Barrett. Randi is challenging us to use tearing or faux tearing on our project. 

I used  Happy Father's Day , one of this month's new releases by Our Daily Bread designs.  I stamped the toolbox image with Sepia Archival onto a scrap of textured tan cs, tore the edges, and then sponged with T Holtz Distress Inks in Tea Dye and Black Soot.  For the verse I stamped with Sepia but then I drew in lines to simulate wood grain, and again tore the edges and sponged.  I added screw head brads to the end of each "board".  The base is True Thyme, then a scrap of camel colored cs which I embossed with the CB Distressed Stripes EF and sponged.  The dp is Memory Box Twiggy.   I added some Hemp twine and a cross charm that says "Faith".

This card is also for Bible Verse Thursday  at Christian Paper Crafts ( make a masculine card and include a Bible verse) and A Spoon full of Sugar which is to create one for the boys.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I love knowing you were here!
