Hello! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. The weather here was great and I really enjoyed getting out and soaking up a little sun.
The Try a New Technique challenge at SCS today was to make a triangle fold medallion. I have never done one of these before, so it was a good challenge for me. Here is the link to the challenge with with instructions on how to do it.
I used designer paper from K&Company for my medallion. Before assembling the pieces, I sponged the triangles with Ruby Red ink to give it a bit more dimension.
Once I had it together, I thought is looked a bit like a poinsettia, so I pulled out Melanie's A Year of Flowers and stamped some leaves to go around it. I stamped them on white card stock and then sponged them with Old Olive ink. Then I used my aqua painter to add some shadows.
The background is Very Vanilla, sponged with Ruby Red and then dry embossed with the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder. After embossing, I sponged on a little more Ruby Red on the dots. Below that is a layer of Bravo Burgundy card stock, then Basic Black. The card base is Creamy Caramel.
Have a great day!
