Quilty card technique
I entered Oriental Stamps arts Challenge #316 today and got my card in just under the wire.
This weeks card required doing a modified simple quilt technique.
This card took me about 5 minutes to make.
I will show you the card first stand then go through the steps:
The challenge required these triangly shaped pieces and a stamped image and embellishments.
I picked out may papers:
Decided which colors I wanted where and glued the first area down. This looks like a lot of glue but it really wasn't . I use Lineco glue, it works beautifully, it is made for handmade book making.
In this next step I make sure I line my corners to the edge of the paper as I cut my base to the exact size I needed. This reminds me a lot of quilting..
Adding each piece leaving a margin of about 1/8th inch
Here is the reverse side.
Cutting it down to fit
the finished piece reverse
I glued the base paper onto the card base added the embellishments.
you should give this a try it is loads of fun and a good way to use scarps!!
Thanks for stopping by!
