Paris Tiny Collage

Another card featuring the Stringing You Along technique from the brand new Technique Junkies Feb 09 newsletter...

Card measures 6 1/4" x 5"

STAMPS: I Brake For Stamps - Time To Stamp sheet, fleur de lis was a freebie :o)

INKS: Stampin' Up! Kiwi Kiss, Adirondack Mushroom, Staz-On Jet Black

SUPPLIES: smooth-topped adhesive-backed rhinestones (my new favorite bling!!), paper flowers, gingham ribbon, string, vellum, sponges, flat Glue Dots

TECHNIQUES: Technique Junkies Stringing You Along from the Feb 09 newsletter

NOTES: I just noticed this would be a great layout for using up atc-sized pieces ~ Staz-On works great anytime you want to stamp your words on vellum, which I love because it doesn't cover the bkgd completely - and speaking of the quote, in the photo it is striking me as too plain so I'm going to add tiny bling to both sides of the author's name like I have on the fleur de lis ~ the paper flowers are very dimensional in person so I use flat Glue Dots between each layer to make sure they aren't going anywhere ~ I totally took the color inspiration from the very reasonable bag of green, white, black and brown assorted flowers by Hero Arts - in real life they match perfectly and there is more difference between the green and brown - try to picture all the greens as more limey than olive...

Enjoy the rest of the weekend!
