CAC ~ 5 Red & White Polka Dots!
Here is the next challenge from Becky...this one was a little easier as far as the colors went. I did try to step out of the box and do something a bit different. Our job was ONLY to stay within the cutting and color parameters, which is what I did! This was so fun I actually made 2! What do you think?
a close up of my sweet little flower - a clear flower that I stamped Papertrey Ink's Background Basics: Textstyle in black on it. Then I tied a knot in the Aqua Mist Satin Ribbon and notched the ends as "leaves".
I was even able to finally use my sewing machine on a card. That was fun! For my sentiment I, once again, used masking to create my own sentiment - I used two sentiments from PTI's Handwritten Notes.
This next close up is from my scallop punched flower with a satin ribbon knot in the button.
With this card, I used one of my new favorite techniques which is using a marker to outline the main image on the card. I then added some red dew drops to help the sentiment stand out.
