CASology #197: Tear


Hi All,

Is ‘tear’ a verb or a noun? You decide!

I treated it as a verb, and created my sea by  ‘tearing’ a strip of post-it paper, and inking across the edge of it, into the negative space created by a die-cut circle. This gave me a lovely textured edge, without the need to add a layer.

To maintain white space, but to create some interest, I scored the base card, paper-pieced the boat sails and added three gemstone ‘port-holes’. Enough faffing about with one wee boat, don’t you think!

The DT have taken you down a variety of noun and verb paths this week. Take a look!

  1. Love the way you layered with this with the offset grey panel and the scored background and your torn sea is brilliant! I’m also going to totally steal your idea of gemstone portholes! 😀

  2. Such a cute card, Hazel! I love your torn paper (looks just like water), and the adorable little boat is so fun!
