Times of change always make me look back and reflect, too. I decided that this challenge would blend the old and the new....so.....
Let's go back to our first ever challenge and do it again!
I highly encourage you to flip back and see what folks did with this challenge the first time around, but for those of you who want to get right to it, here it is:
MAKE PATTERNED PAPER WITH CARDSTOCK
That's it. Make just a small accent piece or transform a whole piece of paper into a new pattern using cardstock. The choice is yours.
As always, you have 2 weeks to submit your creations for a chance to win a RAK. (More on that later). The deadline is 12midnight e.s.t. on Sunday, November 1.
Here is what the team did:
Kimmy created 2 patterned papers. For the black one she glimmer misted the colored scrap papers, punched out the butterflies and adhered them to the black glimmer misted paper in a pattern. For the white background piece, she splattered glimmer mist in coordinating colors all over the page.
Helga took the challenge a different way and created her patterned paper using Distress Inks, water and stamps.
Amanda created the green scroll background with her Cricut. The silver cardstock in the foreground was embossed with a Cuttlebug embossing folder and then sanded (making the raised image appear to be brushed metal).
Miwako created her patterned paper by starting with a base of ivory cardstock. She used her favorite distress inks (especially Tim Holtz's tattered rose) and also stamped with acrylic paint onto the background.
I used a small punch to punch orange circles out of cardstock, which I then glued to a piece of graph paper, making a patterned paper on top of a patterned paper.
Deborah used a mask and Maya Road mist on her background cardstock. The black cardstock has die cuts layered on top.
Now let's see what YOU can do with cardstock!
