TIPsy Tuesday - Fake Torn Edge


Have you ever wanted to have a torn edge but could not because the paper was just too small?  I really wanted the torn edge look for this song sheet paper from October Afternoon but I didn't want to cut into the actual wording and images. 

To get a torn edge look without sacrificing much paper:

  1. Trim the very edge with a rough edge decorative scissors.  These are from Provocraft.
  2. Use a distressing tool to rough up the edge more naturally.  This tool is from Stampin' Up!


That's it.  Then you can ink as desired.  I put some Ranger Old Paper on first further onto the DSP.  Then went around the edge with Ranger Vintage Photo.  It almost looks like a burned edge.



The flower was spritzed with two different Angel's mists.  It is just a regular silk flower from Hobby Lobby that I pulled apart for this collage card.  The scallop circle is cut from newsprint and distressed.
Happy day!  Thanks for spending part of it here.
