Summer Treats

The challenge this fortnight for the Studio is to use just 5 products - card stock, pens and stitching don't the 5 products

White Gesso
Liquid pearls
Tando Chipboard butterfly (covered in paper)
Websters - Picnic Basket paper
Websters Modern Romance circle stickers

Here is the websters sheet - I made my own die cut and cut out the picnic basket...and used the strip on the bottom of the paper.

I started by lining all my cut out elements on the cardstock, and then removed them and covered the card with white gesso using a palette knife.  I used a bazzil scalloped circle as the template for the my dotted die cut, I used foam pads to raise some of the elements and added a banner of circles which I carefully dotted with liquid pearls.  I printed the title out using word and then poked holes through it onto the card stock, then stitching it.

If you would like to see lots more lovely inspiration and join us here is the link.
