A Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge #41

The challenge this week over on A Spoon Full of Sugar is 'Torn Edges'. I'm not a big fan of tearing, not that I don't like everyone's elses creations using torn paper, it's just my own tearing...lol. And for this challenge I went overboard with the tearing, mind you if you'd been in my house last night when I was putting this card together, you'd of heard a lot of tutting and a few choice words.


The image is one of the new Gorjuss Girls, which was a RAK from my buddy Emma, who popped round for a coffee and chat yesterday, good swap for a coffee I think, you can come again Emma...lol. Coloured her with Copics, then did something a little different with the background, I chalked it in purple then using a waterbrush and ruler I added stripes, I was really pleased with the final effect and I'll be experimenting some more with chalk and water. I've torn the edges of the image and re-chalked in the purple. The papers are handmade papers I had in my scraps stash and again I've torn all the edges. Found a piece of purple mulberry paper in my scraps and so using the ruler and waterbrush again I drew a square with the water, tore the square shape then mounted the image onto this. The fabric flowers are from my stash and I punched some mulberry paper flowers for the centres, then put the flowers together with purple brads. Added some flat-backed pearls to the free corners of the card and image, which were coloured with peel-off markers.

This is smashing. I love those deep purple colours and the dark blue goes well with the colour scheme, but what I find truly amazing is how neat your tearing is! I have never seen such neat tearing like that. Brilliant!
