Wow, three weeks in already! Thanks to everyone who has shared links to their galleries! It's so much fun seeing how each of you goes after the challenge. Remember, there really aren't any rules. We just want to encourage you to use what you own...
This week's challenge gets us back to basics. While electronic die cutting machines are all the rage, I remember when I got giddy over any new EK Success border punch. But to be honest, I do believe that I own a couple that I may not have ever used... or maybe used once. Such was the case with my Swiss Cheese Border Punch. Couple this fact with not one, but TWO sites on the net issuing polka dot challenges, and voila' ! Here we are.
This was my first effort... but I didn't really feel satisfied with the patterned paper on it. So, I redid the sentiment on a strip of white cardstock, cut a flag end onto the strip and added it with pop dots. I like the tone on tone much better! Here's the final version :)
We are connecting this week with Paper Smooches Stamps Sparks Challenge .
Although my card was for last week's challenge, PS will have a new challenge starting on Monday - do either one! It's ok if you don't own any Paper Smooches Stamps (though I highly recommend them), they have FREE digi stamps to use too! YAY. Of course, you don't have to enter that part of the challenge if you don't want to.
Now for the Shop Your Stash part of the challenge. As the title implies, this week is about tools AND techniques. Your mission is to use the following:
- A border punch that has gone unloved for too long (I used the Swiss Cheese EK Success)
- A spray mist of any kind (I used lots of Maya Mists with a mask I made from my punch)
- Baker's Twine (I have such a love for twine)!
Go forth and have fun!
