The Pink Elephant recipe challenge

This week's recipe challenge at The Pink Elephant was a tough one for me, since I really don't use border punches. I persevered, though, and OMG I'm so stinking pleased with myself! I love how it turned out. The recipe is two patterned papers, one border punch, and one heart.


Supplies: papers from Bo Bunny; digi image from Sweet Pea stamps (link to the artist's selection); Martha Stewart butterfly border punch & fine crystal glitter; American Crafts yellow glitter; Studio Calico heart veneer (embossed with versamark & black detail EP); Paper Smooches twine; Bic & spectrum noir markers; Sakura Stardust glitter pen; black & red rhinestones from Dollarama


I embossed the veneer heart with two layers of embossing powder for a more even coat. I've been enjoying my fairies so much that I went & bought five more images to work with (ching chou kuik has a fabulous selection of fairies & mermaids!) and have lots of fun cards made with them.

Jessi
