LOOK WHAT I DISCOVERED!
Don't you love it when you discover another use for something other than what it was intended for? I do.
I have been admiring the line drawings on Nicole Heady's blog where she adds a square or rectangle line drawing to the front of a card . I did follow her directions and did a lot of measuring, but since math and fractions have never been my strong suit I improvised and found an alternate way of drawing the lines.
I used the photo corner punch as a guide.
You can see in this picture ever so faintly, the little tick marks where I have placed the larger photo corner on my card in each corner and lightly marked with a pencil in each direction. Then using your ruler draw a straight line from one mark to the other without a lot of measuring. Once I have connected the markings I just erase the pencil marks.
Here is the finished result. I used Melon Mambo and Pumpkin Pie inks on the Medallion stamp, I really like the way it turned out. Of course I had to add some sparkly .
Do you think it's too much?
You're right there's never too much bling!
Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment I appreciate it.
