MIM #119 features Flagged Borders by Dawn McVey
(who should be a hand model! Did you see those aqua nails?)
Dawn's tutorial had some great elements. One I picked up on was telling your story with flags.
So many birthdays in June, so birthday it is!
I began with a tag sale die, stamped Boutique Borders sentiment and swirly flourish, then outlined in white stitches.
From there die cuts of Just the Ticket with stamping birthday joy.
Hanging by a thread dies stamped with In Pure Poppy with the Stitches and Swirls set.
All this onto a kraft cardstock embossed with a damask pattern.
Ink was then sponged on the kraft (was it Heather that gave that tutorial?) backside.
I first did white, didn't like the effect and went over it in Aqua Mist.
You get a better look at the background in this photo.
A couple of cutesy flower buttons and some red baubles and done.
Can't wait for another excuse to do a few more!
Dawn, thank you, and consider hand modeling!
