Tapestry Technique


Today's Technique Challenge on SCS is called Tapestry. I don't think I did it correctly, but if you want to check out the challenge (and find a link to the tutorial) you can see it here... http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/forums/showthread.php?t=269015


My card base is Soft Sky cardstock from Stampin' Up (all products are Stampin' Up unless otherwise noted.) I stamped starbursts from the Papertrey Ink Text Box set on the card base using Versamagic Sea Breeze ink. I used Elegant Eggplant craft ink, and Versamagic Purple Hydrangea and Spring Pansy ink to sponge the background of my tapestry piece, and then stamped more starbursts on this with Whisper White craft ink. The piece is then heat-embossed to achieve the tapestry look (which I don't think I accomplished!) I stamped the focal image with the Purple Hydrangea ink, trimmed and mounted it on Eggplant cardstock and attached Ice Circle brads. I tied the purple stitched organdy (from Michael's $1 bin) and silver cord around my tapestry piece and adhered it to the card. I stamped "joy" from the Text Box set in Purple Hydrangea, then punched it out with the Word Window punch, and adhered it to the focal image. I adhered this to the card using dimensionals. I really like how the card turned out, even though I still don't think I did the technique correctly! :) Thanks for looking, and have a wonderful day!
