CFC78: So torn
Tear something on your clean and simple project
So the challenge this week is to tear something on your project. I gotta say, I had never really been a fan of this technique...until now. I mean, I love the way it looks when other people do it, but my straight-lined brain just doesn't let me do it on my projects. And even though I did tear my paper on this card, I still had some reservations about doing it. So, instead of just free-form, I tore my papers against a ruler, and I really like the way it turned out! Now for the paper yummies:
I tore both edges of the patterned paper as well as the cardstock sentiment panel. I inked the edges just slightly with some Antique Linen Distress Ink to accentuate them. The sentiment stamp is from a new CAS-ual Fridays set that will be sneak peek-ed next week. I stamped it using Black Cherry Staz-On ink, and added Diamond Stickles to the center of each snowflake:
I punched a snowflake border using a Martha Stewart punch, and placed it below the patterned paper. I inked it a little too:
I really love the way this card turned out! I think the torn edges really add to the homespun look. How about you? Do you prefer free-form or "orderly" tearing? Either way, we'd love to have you play along with this week's challenge! You have until next Thursday at noon EST to do so. Thanks so much for looking!
