Paper Tearing Challenge

Greetings! Over at the Hero Arts Blog they were having a Paper Tearing Challenge. So I had combined the Hero Arts Challenge with the latest colors from the Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #18... I don't own very many of their stamps. But this seamed like a great opportunity to create something using minimal Hero Arts stamps since I only own one Christmas set, a sentiment stamp set.

The tree was created by tearing layers of cardstock, adhering them together then cutting away the excess to form the tree shape. Then embellished with a raspberry star and rhinestones.
The snow was torn from cream cardstock, crinkled then adhered to the card base and then the torn edge was lifted for a little dimension. The card base was stamped with a few snowflakes from Winter Swirls set in Versamark.
Hope you enjoyed your visit with me today, have a wonderful day!

  18. What a way to meet those challenges! The tree and snow drifts made from torn paper are fantastic! And the bling on the tree is a great mix with the rough edges of the paper.

  24. I thought just for fun, I would look back at your stuff when you first started, you know make myself feel better about my work as a rookie. Hoping that I can say, gosh, I am going to just keep getting better cuz usually when people start making cards they have some not so great cards. um, I don't feel much better. I would pin this card RIGHT NOW!
