Introducing Perfect Tears

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!
