Create a faux torn edge with scrap paper and sponges.
- Brayer with sponge attachment or sponges
- Lightweight scrap paper
- Dye Ink
- removable adhesive (optional)
- Stamps (optional)
Carefully tear the scrap paper. Add soft waves if so desired.
Apply removable adhesive to the back of the scrap paper.
Adhere scrap paper to cardstock.
Ink a brayer and then apply ink to cardstock until the cardstock has the color you are looking for.
Try misting your sponge attachment with water before adding ink. It seems to pick up ink better this way.
Step 5 (Optional)
Stamp over the brayered section.
Pull off your scrap paper and remove adhesive residue.
Finish your card.
Double it up
After sponging your first layer, cover the sponged part up with the other part of your ripped scrap paper. Move your first piece of scrap paper over a bit and sponge a second "layer".
Exchange the die inks with pigment ink for a different look.
