Tear It Up - Daring Cardmakers Challenge

Happy Friday!

I've felt like I've been a day behind all week and all because I was away at CHSI Stitches on Monday.  It was a good opportunity to network, meeting up with friends old and new and those who I work with in the craft industry.  I enjoyed seeing some new products and even got to do a Workshop.

This week's Daring Cardmakers Challenge was set by Dawn.  She asked for an element of tearing on our cards.  I love a bit of tearing so this Challenge was right down my street and I created a card with torn textural layers.  It was SO much fun!


You can see the layers a little better on this photo:


I used distress inks on the edges of the torn paper and on the wooden hearts.  There's lots more inspiration by my fellow DT members HERE and I hope you'll join in!

Have a great weekend,
Shabneez

Products Used:
Sizzix Thinlit die
First Edition Alphabet Dies
Tim Holtz Distress Inks
Everything else from my stash
