I finally had a chance to play along with the Try a New Technique challenge this week over at SCS. The technique was to use a grid on your project. The Scor-pal makes it so easy. I scored the card stock on the diagonal every half inch, rotated the paper and repeated. I then stamped the grid with a screen mesh background stamp from River City Rubber Works in Stampin' Up Bashful Blue ink. I love how it makes it look like the paper is quilted.
Isn't this a cheerful PP? It's from the Blossom Collection by 3 Bugs in a Rug. The sentiment and main image is from the All Things Grow with Love set from Storage Units, Ink & More. I just love these little flowers. They are so easy to color and they make me smile just to look at them. I used a circle punch and then added a scalloped circle made with my Nestabilities. I finished the card off with a touch of my favorite (at the moment) ribbon.
It's so much fun to try new techniques, I can't wait to see what they come up with for next week.
