Pattern Play Day #4







Back with some more homework from Pattern Play, the lesson on Day 4 was about altering your patterned paper to give it a new look.  Some of the techniques introduced were the use of Glossy Accents, Distress Stickles and Stain, using enamel, etc.  This is totally out of my comfort zone!  I love the look of all of the those techniques, but on someone else's card!  LOL  
However, homework is homework and I tackled them. I am also linking this card up to the Simon Says Easter/Spring challenge.

The techniques I used for my card were based on Jennifer McGuire's instructions on how to make a shaped card and make it stand up.  I used Glossy Accents, Distress Stickles and a white gel pen on my card.



Cardstock:  White , Summer Sunrise (Papertrey Ink)
Patterned Paper: Bright Side (Lawn Fawn)
Stamps: Flower Friend (Simon Says Stamps)
Ink:   True Black (Papertrey Ink)
Dies: Classic Circles and Scalloped Circles (Spellbinders)
other: Glossy Accents, Mustard Seed Distress Stickles (Ranger), uniball white white gel pen (Signo),  foam tape

Wow--more of those gorgeous papers. Great job altering all those papers. You are very brave, and a good student, too. It is so fun that you made a circle card--very out of the box thinking.

I never make shaped cards because I couldn't figure them out if they weren't square...
