Thank Goodness There is Piecing!
I really like to make cards using the frame template from the Gina K. Designs Fabulous Frames set illustrated by Melanie Muenchinger. And, Melanie also designed a set called Fabulous Frame Fillers and another new one called Fabulous Holiday Fillers. And, I was doing okay until it came to putting really small images into circles. I messed up almost every one of them. I think being partly blind in one eye messes with me so that I don't see quite well enough to get a good result. But I was still determined to make that frame I stamped into a fairly usable card. And, with some piecing I think I did just that!
Besides using the frame I also used pine and cone image and sentiment from another Gina K. Designs set called Peace and Joy by Theresa Momber. I colored in my image and the outside of the frame with my Spectrum Noir alcohol ink markers. I found some pattern paper that I thought worked from the Blizzard Paper Pack from Gina K. Designs. Now I happened to have some ribbon that had dots on it and almost matched the stamped dotted red pattern that I added from the Fabulous Holiday Fillers so I used that. The glare from the lighting does not show the dots really well on the ribbon, but if you look closely I think you can see it towards the bottom. And, yes, it is not perfect, but I think I salvaged it quite well. I might have to resort to more paper piecing as I think this is a very lovely look!
I will enter this into the Mix It Up Monday challenge at Stamp TV and also in the Mod Squad Challenge.
