Tearing up a Colour Challenge

My card tonight combines 2 challenges
Less is More - Tearing
Dynamic Duos

Here is my card

I used white card stock for my base and then added some Basic Black and more Whisper White run through a Swiss Dots embossing folder. My flowers are Stampin' Up punches and I have added a black brad to the centre.
My tearing is on the middle panel, I used torn pieces of masking to create a trellis effect, I then sponged over it with black ink.
Here's a close up

Thanks for looking - see you soon - Jacqueline xx


  1. Stunning technique Jacqueline, I got up really close and that centre panel is fab! Another idea to file away:)
