    Shrunk down the torn border and bled it into the dark, inner strip. Preferring this more subtle look.

    Tried it without the drop shadow so that it looks more like a tear than an overlay?

    Yeah, that works okay with this background but we have an alternating background image in place and without the shadow, there's not enough contrast on some of the images.

    Yeah, but a tear shouldn't look like it's overlaid, surely?

    A tear of the background shouldn't no, but it's not visually supposed to be part of the background. It should look like an element on top of the others, which happens to have a textured look and feel to it if that makes sense?

    True. Just thought it would be cool if it was a tear of the background, would look good. ;-)

    Yeah, it did. That was the original idea but with the dynamic background, we couldn't retain the contrast needed to have it tearing the background unfortunately. This was a compromise ;)
