I really should be cleaning, as we have a mate from the states coming tomorrow, but it’s been too long since just had a creative playtime and I had an idea that I just wanted to try out.
I was playing with the idea from last week of brayering ink over the embossed cardstock, and I spied the new punch that I got, the one with the big holes and scallops.
I punched the edge with the hole-y scallop and trimmed ita 1/2 inch or so above the scallops. I scored it in my usual way, between the scallops and at the apex, then stuck the ends to make a circle and squashed it to make a rosette.
Topped with a button, they look very pretty. BUT, I think they are perhaps better on a card or maybe hanging on a ribbon as an ornament. I suppose they aren’t all that much thicker than a normal rosette but still, they might be a little bit thick for a scrapbook page. Maybe on a band to create a napkin ring? Anyway, it was just my first experiment with it, and as I usually do I’ll probably play around with it a bit more till I perfect it.
I like the look of the strip, punched, before it gets scored and THAT I might play around with to use as a border on a scrapbook page. Lucky I have a crop this weekend!
