Challenge Time Again

In the new issue of Craft Stamper that came out last week there is a beautiful project by Helen Chilton using a tearing technique to add dimension. This is the technique featured in the latest Make It, Take It Challenge on the Craft Stamper blog. Do take a look and then join in for a chance to win.

The technique this time is much more my style. Tearing and grunginess I can do!

With the days now longer and occasional glimpses of sun appearing I have chosen some very light and airy colours. I am trying really hard to feel Spring like despite the cold.

As well as tearing I seem to have used quite a lot of die cuts in this project. The arches were marked out using Sissix thinlit arch dies as a template and the rosette and foliage are die cut from paper and funky foam.

To keep things light and bright, I didn't ink the torn edges on my project. Instead I applied some PVA using a bit of sponge and then sprinkled on glitter. I sabotaged the edges of the rosette by tearing and glittering in the same way.
The central image is a Lynne Perrella stamp from Paper Artsy plate 011.
OK so that's my take on the theme. What's yours?
