The last design challenge with Stampers Quest was for a New Zealand company called Rubbadubbadoo. I have to say I am impressed with these stamps. Very high quality rubber that stamps beautifully. Even the highly detailed stamps like this one. This scenic stamp is shaped the same as the aperture. It has been stamped with black ink and colored with colored pencils
How to make this torn aperture:
1. One back side of the 4.25 x 5.50 inch piece of paper position the template or in this case actual cut out stamped image that is desired as the aperture shape and size.
2. Carefully draw around the shape with a stylus to create a depression.
3. Tear out the aperture, leave enough paper between the tear and the stylus drawn line to tear and curl back.
4. Tear into the paper and just up to the stylus line. The tears in the curve will have to be closer together than those on the straight edges.
5. Gently fold along the stylus drawn edge towards what will be the front of the card.
This is how I got the curve to curl back so nicely. The edges of the torn curl back are distressed with brown ink as is the entire front. The branch stamp is from Rubbadubbadoo as well and is stamped with a medium brown ink.
