Polkadoodles Challenge 2

Friday, 29 May 2009

We have such great papers to work with, it’s really hard to choose, but the cherries won for this challenge. I just couldn't think what to do with sketch no 2, so it just evolved. The edges of the card and paper were ruffed up with a craft knife. Then randomly hand stitched the paper, made the frame from clear plastic packaging and attached ribbon to it with little knots, which I then threaded through the scallop. Used little tags for the sentiment. I wasn't happy with the paper I've used, but I've just bought thicker, better quality card which I will use for the next challenge.
