The Res-Q-Challenge - Poor White Trash


This is my first entry for Res-Q-Challenge.

The challenge today at Res-Q-Challenge - Trashy Tuesday we were asked to find our inner white trash.
The Challenge:
Think back to when we first started stamping...we didn't have all the latest and greatest gadgets, embellishments, and accessories. I was always looking for ways to add some pizazz to my cards. For this week's challenge I want you to roll up your sleeves and find your inner white trash.Your challenge is to make a card that must include a tattered piece of white cardstock as your background...for mine, I spritzed a piece with water and crumpled in into a ball and worked it until it was distressed to my liking. You can tear yours, crumple it, stomp on it, run it over with the car...as long as it's tattered somehow. There's also a catch...you cannot use any modern embellishments or tools (punches are ok but no added bling, rhinestones, cuttlebug/nesties, dewdrops, etc.); keep it simple...you're limited to using only image stamp and one sentiment.
I just scrunched my White Trash and attached it to the card and I also distressed the black background as well.
Have a nice day and happy crafting.
