Now, that's a great reason to pull out all of
your pattern papers with SPOTS & STRIPES....
I love to learn new things! (ask me in a few weeks how crocheting is going)
I challenged myself in this endeavor by attempting a tri-shutter-card.
(looks more complicated than it actually was, in fact this a.m. my girlies were perched in my window seat stamping and making tri-shutter cards for their teachers!)
start with 6" x 12" piece of paper
score from both short ends at 2" and 4"
rotate paper vertically cutting at the 4.5" mark on both sides
from the two score lines furthest apart
Having the dots under control, I plotted out my STRIPES...
I wanted to bring Polkadotasaurus to life via layering (and lots of coloring)
him and all his 'pieces parts'...
And now assembled utilizing "BOOST STICKERS" :)
(That is what Sierra asked for this a.m.--
it took me a few to realize she wanted 3-d foam pop dots
to give her image a BOOST off her card. How cute is that!?)
FLAT spots seemed boring, so I sprinkled fuzzy brads upon the green and blue SPOTS
got to love COLORFUL CHAOS....
I am such a fan of dimension- this style card truly delivers!
here is the stretched out view...a glimpse at the layers...
the very sparkly palm frans and petite brown pom-pons trunk...
slick dino parts
And a message for all of my artistic friends,
Thank you ladies at Stamp Something for letting me play with you!
Good Luck to all who enter their SPOTS & STRIPES!!
