The challenge this week in my stamp group is to do a faux torn paper look using a stencil. You can go HERE to Heidi's blog to see a written tutorial on how to do it.
I cut my paper to A2 size and then tore a strip of lightweight paper to cover the center portion of my card where I will later add my stamped image and sentiment. Lay your stencil on top of that and then using two brown inks I inked up my stencil, then after removing the stencil you ink around the edges of the torn paper and your card. Such a quick technique but looks so neat and this is a one layer card, so no problem with mailing.

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by, and if you are in one of the HOT spots around the U.S. I hope you are staying cool.
