The sponsor this week on the Mod Squad Blog is Melanie Muenchinger and we get an extra entry if we use one of her stamps. I used her Fabulous Frame and Fabulous Holiday Fillers sets.
I stamped the frame on a piece of teal cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I stamped the sentiment several times with Stampin' Up! Taken with Teal ink and embossed both the frame and sentiment with Recollections clear embossing powder.
I then used a Cuttlebug embossing folder to emboss the flower pattern. I used Spectrum Noir marker BT5 on the border of the frame.
I used the cut files for the belly bands and flower and then stamped them with Tuxedo Black using a Stamp A Ma Jig to get them centered. I coloured the belly bands with Spectrum Noir LV2 and used LV3, LV2, LV1, CT2, JG3, JG2 and JG1 on the flower.
I adhered the frame onto a white card base, added the belly bands and popped up the flower with some foam squares. I thought it looked a little dark so I made a bow from a spare piece of white ribbon and used a glue dot to attach it.
