Faux tearing tutorial

Here is a tutorial I did for Simple Salutations #56 coming up tomorrow 7/31/13 so please check out my tutorial and think about joining our challenge.  This tutorial is being featured on Mark's Finest Papers a Heinrich Co. blog today.

A fun technique that uses ordinary post-it notes to create a fun and easy layer.

Post-it notes
Stipple brushes
Stamps – MFPaHC Wealthy Fish
Inks – Ranger Adirondack stonewash, denim & lettuce


1. Rip post-notes and stick to 5 x 3 ¾” cream cardstock.
2. Stipple Adirondack stonewash ink inside the ripped post-it notes…about halfway across.
3. Stipple Adirondack denim inside ripped post-it notes the rest of the way across card.
4. With the ripped post-it notes still in place stamp the fish once with Adirondack denim ink then remove post-notes and stamp the fish one more time.
5. Stamp the bamboo with Adirondack lettuce ink in the middle of the two stamped fish.
6. Stamp saying with same denim ink in the top left corner.
7. Outline the edge of the stamped card with Marvy oriental blue marker then layer onto 5 ¼ “ x 4 cream cardstock.
8. Layer stamped card onto navy blue top fold note card.
9. Stamp bamboo with lettuce ink on inside 5 ¼ “ x 4 cream card then layer inside navy blue top fold card.
