Jac Inks Challenge Card


Today's card was made for a new challenge blog: Jac Inks.  The challenges on the blog are run fortnightly and the newest one is a sketch challenge.  I haven't entered one of their challenges before as I've only just found their blog.  This week's sketch was quite lovely and provided me with an opportunity to try something new.

I hadn't ever made one of the pleated medallions before.  They are so easy!  I just cut a strip of 12" cardstock 1 1/2" wide, scored it every 1/4" and pleated it.  Then I joined the ends, pushed it flat and adhered it to a circle punchie with Crystal Effects.

The birdie was sprayed with a mix of Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint and Isocol for a lovely subtle glitter.

Stamps: Cute by The Inch
Ink: Riding Hood Red
DSP/Cardstock: Love Letter DSP, Basic Black, Very Vanilla
Other: 2 Step Bird XL Punch, 1 1/4" Circle M Punch, Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint, Crystal Effects

Catch you later,
