When I first saw Danielle's Make It Monday Challenge at Papertrey Ink, where she uses dimensional paste to create a flocked look on her cards, I figured I couldn't participate because I don't have any dimensional paste.
Then, Danielle linked to Cornelia's blog, where she shares a recipe to make your own dimensional paste.
I still wasn't sure if I would participate, since I only own two PTI cover plates, but then I saw
this fabulous card that Debby Hughes made and I was inspired.
So, I mixed up a batch of dimensional paste, substituting white glue for the white paint.
And here's what I made...
I used the Mighty Oak cover plate for my technique.
For my fox, I paper-pieced him with rustic white and canyon clay card stock.
Sage has this t-shirt, which sparked the idea to give the fox a scarf.
I used the scarf from my SSS Stylish Simon stamp set and trimmed it down.
I was going to paper-piece it for the stripes, but then I reminded myself that I'm not a crazy person,
so I water coloured it with some classic kraft ink instead.
I added his head and the speech bubble with some dimensional adhesive.
I gave this card to Sage. She and I have been pretty sad that summer is over (& we can't buy watermelon in the store anymore!) So, I wanted to encourage her to find the blessings of each season and told her to write five of them on the back of the card.
She wrote six:
1. how beautiful it looks outside
3. all the days I can play inside
4. my birthday
5. my new teachers
6. all the time I get to spend with you
Isn't she the sweetest?
By the way, I'm also linking this card up for the Simon Says Stamp Challenge: Anything Goes.
Thanks for looking!
