You have 3 weeks to play along (until August 5th).
Our sponsors this week are:
Every year Canadians (me) celebrate Canada Day on July 1st. This month’s challenge was to make a card that represented my country in some way so I chose to make an all red & white card since that’s the colors on the Canadian flag. And speaking of flags, I thought I’d have this little sweetie proudly waving them. I used red & white polka-dot washi tape in keeping with the challenge theme, used a red Bic-Mark-It to create the stitch lines around the edge of the card, and added a little bow with a red button.
I tried something a little different to color this image. I used Paint Shop Pro and digitally painted the image using gradients and patterns and then printed it using my inkjet printer.
I tried to keep this card on the simple side. Here’s a look at the inside…
And here’s a close-up look at the butterflies. I printed out an image and used my silhouette to cut around it.
Well, that’s it. Thanks for stopping by. I hope you decide to enter your paper-pieced creation in the CIO challenge this week.
