Tearing it Up with Alicia!

Good morning Quick Quotes readers, this is Alicia sharing today. 

 I am so Thankful for you and always appreciate your stopping by to see the design teams' inspirations. This month we will be teaming up with Want2Scrap and I have used their Gunmetal pearls-250 count to create a border along the side of my card. I also played with this month's Quick Quotes' Challenge: Tear it Up! 

 I used a shaped tearing tool to create a couple of layers that I inked up with Midnight Confessions PowderPuff Chalking Ink for a super sweet but distressed look.

Here's a hint to create an evenly spaced border:
  • I tied the twine first so I would know the amount of space with which to work
  • I lined up the larger pearls with the grid all the way down the left side
  • I went back and placed the smaller pearls in between for perfect spacing

I love how I can use three different Quick Quotes paper collections to create a card that matches so perfectly.  It shows the versatility of the collections and the creative thoughts of the designers to be able to blend them together so well.
