H2H - Life is a Zoo

Welcome to this week's Heart 2 Heart challenge! 

The theme this week is paper tearing. Close To My Heart's papers have a white core so there are a lot of options with this technique.

I chose to use the non-white side for my torn papers... considering what I chose to do, I didn't want the white showing. 

I created a scene simply using a variety of cardstock colours, torn and layered on top of each other. I started with Espresso (dark brown), travelled through shades of green and ended with a medium blue (Bluebird). Each piece of cardstock was torn and adhered at the bottom. I stamped four of the animals from the current Operation Smile stamp set, coloured them, cut them out and then placed them between the torn edges. I went back and added glue dots to secure the torn paper edges. The sentiment is part of a larger sentiment but I only wanted the section that read "Life is a Zoo". A few tiny images were stamped on each colour section as well. 

Come and join us at Heart 2 Heart and show us your paper tearing technique.
