Quixotic Paperie #4 - Tearing!

Good Afternoon and welcome the 4th Quixotic Paperie Challenge. This week Kim has chosen the theme of 'Tearing', so a nice simple one to take part in.

Thank you for all your entries last week and they will all be entered into the draw to take place next week for the £20 Quixotic Paperie voucher.

I think I am going through a scrappy phase! I am really enjoying making cards with a more scrappy look. They are certainly coming together a bit quicker than my usual matting and stitching! So maybe in this busy card making season I will be doing a few more! My inspiration from this card is from the very talented Inge. I love her cards!!


Colouring is done with prismas and all the edges are inked with 'Frayed Burlap'.


The image is Miss Anya from the original set and the papers are MME 'Life Stories 2' collection, both available from Quixotic Paperie.

Thanks for taking the time to pop by! Much appreciated!

Off to go tidy up after 2 very messy 3 year olds! Peter has a little friend round to play and with a blink off an eye they have moved all the toys from one room to another and stripped the duvets off the beds and dragged them all downstairs!

Catch ya later!

I really love your take on this style Judy and I'm also a huge fan of Inge's cards.... she was the first blog I ever came across!
You made me laugh with your description of the kiddies..... my Georgia used to have a girlfriend round and they would go into her room and empty all her hair clips and play make up onto the floor...grrrrrr, lol! Thankfully she is quite a tidy teenager now so there is some hope hun!
Have a nice day, hugs Tara xx
