On a Tear ~ CYP Challenge #216
Hi everyone. We have a fun challenge at Craft Your Passion this week. The theme is Rip It Tear It so we want to see evidence of you having done some of that on your project. I often tear papers to add to my pieces because I love the irregular edge and the less structured look it gives. Our sponsor this week is the amazing Delicious Doodles and I was fortunate to be able to play with one of their new releases, Tropical Masquerade.
These two were an absolute treat to colour...you know I love detail and vibrant colours. I had all sorts of opportunity to play with the ombre effect that I love so much. I coloured them with my Prismacolor pencils and then cut it out and matted the image with black cardstock. I kept the lines clean and cut to contrast with the background.
The background started with a white card base. Black cardstock was torn to fit the inside as a frame. A piece of tan and yellow designer paper was torn into three sections, edged with Vintage Photo Distress ink, and then adhered to the black with spaces in between. A scrap of red and a tiny scrap of blue cardstock were also torn and layered behind the image to create a colour blocking effect and pull the image colours into the background.
The finishing touch was the addition of three silver backed rhinestones. With such a strong and colourful image and the large blocks of colour on the background, anything else seemed to take away from the design.
Thanks so much for joining me today. I appreciate your support and interest, as do my feathered friends on this card :) When you get a chance, pop over to the Craft Your Passion Challenges blog to see the fabulous projects created by my talented teamies.
