Tear it to pieces

It's time for a new challenge on The Sweet Pea Stampers and today it's 'tear it to pieces' paper tearing. Please click on the link here and see the gorgeous crafting of the rest of the team and, hopefully, join us in the challenge.

I've used the Sweet Pea Stamps 'hang in there, Kitty' digi by Karen Middleton and papers from Basic Grey Max & whiskers pad. The image was coloured with copics and the edges torn with a perspex oval template, using a slightly larger one as a mat for this. Everything was mounted on to a kraft card blank.
