Mornin' hens! So what do you think of Smoochie? OMG, is she a riot or what? Goodness I do LOVE this image. Today I wanted to share a new tool called Perfect Tears. I had never used a tool quite like this before so I thought I'd give it a whirl. Now mind you, I typically always have clean cut edges but I wanted to give this a go. The 3 rulers in this set are designed for tearing paper and each ruler has two different edges. For my project below, I used both the deckle and wave edges. The set comes with a water pen which was the difference between night and day for me. I tried to tear this MME DP which was quite heavy and was having no luck with a clean tear. Then I used the water pen and the tearing was a breeze! To my surprise, I really like this look. And I like how the torn edges stand up a bit so it really adds texture to the layers.
This image is from Tiddly Inks and she's called Smoochy. I'm lovin' those lips! You hens know I'm a sucker for any kind of farm animal. Pigs, cows and of course CHICKENS are my favorites. I colored Smoochy with my Copics and then matted her to some Stampin Up Basic Black CS with my Perfect Layers tool. I printed her lips again and colored them a second time. Then I added the second pair of lips on top for a GREAT 3D look.
Then came the hard part. What kind of sentiment does a fat lipped cow have. Oh my, that was crazy fun searching the internet for some ideas. I finally stumbled onto this one and fell on the floor laughing. What a GREAT birthday card for a girl friend, right?
And here's a close up of the results from the Perfect Tears tool. See the little edges it leaves? Sooooo cool? OMG, I laugh at those lips every time I look at them.
Here is what you get with the Perfect Tears set. Currently, the set sells for $19.99 but you can get an extra 5% off your order if you use the code Jeanie5%
Have a great day!
