Papertrey February Blog Hop Challenge



This month we decided to dedicate the Blog Hop to scallops!  We want to see your best use of scallops, of any sort, on a project!  This can include scalloped borders, offset-scallops, stamped scallops,  scalloped mats, scalloped frames, layered scallops, scalloped tags or anything else you can dream up! You can use dies, patterned scissors or even circle punches in a row to achieve your special look. We are looking forward to seeing all of your amazing creations!



I cut out scallops from four different cardstocks (aqua mist, pure poppy, berry sorbet, sweet blush) and stamped images from "In Bloom" in white ink randomly... I inked the edges with white and adhered them to the card base. 

I cut a length of dark chocolate twill tape and made it into a quasi double-ended banner. It's stiff enough ribbon that I'm confident it will keep it's shape. It's weird stuff, that twill tape. 

Then I stamped the sentiment on white CS, cut it out with a nestie, inked it with aqua mist ink and popped it on the card! 

I've been getting in the habit of leaving my plain CS in a pile on my workspace and shuffling them around to find cool colour combos, and this is a product of tonight's shuffling.. Pretty nice colours eh? 

Thanks for stopping by! Have fun on the hop!
