I can't believe it's been 10 days since my last post. I've been trying to make more time to actually be creating and less time on the computer. But, like most times I don't find a good balance... now i've got way to many creations to share and my blogging is backed up. Such is my life, out of balance, but loving it.
I have a really simple technique to share today. Teeny tiny curly q's, perfect for decorating pumkins as tendrils or leaves or as some spooky black cobwebs.
Here's how I did it... Gather up your supplies; cardstock, patterned paper (Authentique Irresistible Collection), a bunch of tiny leave die cuts (Sizzix), Pumpkin and swirl (Sizzix), inks button, twine... all the usual goodies.
Flick some paint on to the stamped sentiment.
I inked some cardstock so that when I create the curly q's you see a variation between the front and back green colors.
Trim the thinest strips you can from the edge of the cardstock.
Twist the strips of cardstock around a small round tool and pull off. Now you're ready to attach the curly q's to your card.
And here's the finished card. I'm all about dimension and I love how the curly q's pop off the card.
I layered up all the tiny die cut leaves along the bottom of the card and of course had to add some sparkle with some fall colored rhinestones.
