Depth of Distress challenge

 
 The background has been made with a winelabel I received from Jacqueline. Thanks again Jacqueline!
I finally got some time (and inspiration) to change it into a card. More to come, for sure.  
I stamped the text from Hero Arts on tissuepaper before adding torn parts to the background.

(HE)art journal 2012 challenge - April - baking soda and gesso

 


I am entering this in the challenge on:
1. HEart Journal 2012, for April, which is to use baking soda and gesso. 
Yes, I know I am behind, I didn't think the April one would be easy, and I promised myself to first finish the April challenge before starting on the one from May. So, here it is, I wasn't really satisfied, but it'll have to do...LOL
2,. Simon Says Stamps - 'anything but a card'.
I stamped in the gesso/baking powder mix, to get structure.
