A Spoon Full of Sugar #41 - Torn Edges

The challenge this week over at SoS is to use torn edges in your work. This is kind of outside my comfort zone because I am kind of OCD when it comes to things lining up and being straight...LOL! I used this card by Camilla on the DT as my inspiration.

I had this lovely little Cheer Anya just waiting to be colored so I pulled out my new Copics and here she is! I have placed the markers I used in the photo, except I forgot the colorless blender I used to bring out the highlights in her hair. I trimmed around the image and popped her up on foam dots.

CS: light blue that I had stashed away. DP: Cloud9Design double sided Chocolate Swirl & Chocolate Chalet, Kelly Panacci for SandyLion Atomic Turquoise & Turquoise Mini Squares Ribbon: Michael's $1 Bin "Friends" Embellies: Gemstone Brads are Spare Parts, Paper Flowers are Spare Parts and the sentiment is from a Joann's vellum pack called "Friends"

Inspite of myself, I like how the torn edges look and the layers give it lots of depth. Here is a shot of the layers and the image popped up.

This is a shot of the inside of the card and the sentiment that I chose to complement the sentiment on the front. I thought the Cheer Anya was especially appropriate for a friend card, because our friends are often our biggest cheerleaders!

I really like this color combination and can see this becoming a favorite very soon!

I really really like this one ... the torn edges are quite well done and add a lot to the card. I love seeing how you put these together. I am just amazed at the cute things you are able to put together.

Well done! I don't use torn edges, either, for the same reason (LOL), but I may just have to try it. It's good to work out of one's comfort zone sometimes, isn't it?

Love the colors and coloring, too!
