Quixotic Paperie Challenge #4

Good Evening friends, here's my entry for the QP Challenge # 4 which required one to use Tearing on your project. Can't say I enjoyed tearing my lovely paper, but that was the requirement for the challenge this week.  I went for the primary colours red and blue, with a small dash of cream as the background for my image. She's a cutie isn't she?  All the way from Holland. Used red shimmery cardstock as the base for my card and matted with striped blue and red paper which I tore all the way around and inked.  Added a lovely dotted ribbon on the right with a super heart charm. Thought it would be nice to add some flowers for a change.

This little image was received sitting on a bench, which I cut away and placed her on a flower which I cut in half. Seen someone else do something similar and thought I would try it out.

This pic came out slightly blurry, apologies for that. Keeping to the theme, I cut out my lovely striped paper and glued onto the red cardstock, then I tore a piece of white paper and matted that onto the striped paper. Not sure if you can pick it up, but I chalked around the white paper so that it doesn't look so stark white.

Well, that's my little creation for this week folks.  If you like it, please leave a comment as I so enjoy reading them.  So pleased some of you have enjoyed the little tour of our Peninsula. Yes, I am very fortunate to be living in such a picturesque city. Take care until next time, hugs Sharon x

Wonderful card--the image is adorable. Your layering looks great and the torn effect came out very well. But I know how you feel about tearing paper--so hard to do! Have a great week!
