Afternoon, here is my entry in 2 of this weeks challenges. #1 is the AiFactory Tues. challenge. We needed to use one of the free digi stamps and brads or eyelets. I choose eyelets and the sunflower digi. I colored the image with colored pencils.
The sketch is for the Midnight Madness Mon. challenge. The center image is matted in yellow and raised on the card using home made pop dots. I saw a video last week on how to make them out of cardboard but took it one step further and made mine out of the plastic trays that meat and veggies come on when you buy them at the store. Works great and you don't have to stack them to get more height. I wrapped the ribbon around the image so the pop dots don't show and made a nice knot at one corner. I used print paper from JoAnn's for the background and cut a scalloped square to make the corner pieces. Yellow eyelets finish off the card. Hope you enjoyed my card and how to make it, give home made pop dots a try, they are fun to work with and save a lot of money if you like to pop your images. Happy crafting, Janet

  4. Hello Janet - love that image and your colouring! Great job on combining the challenges too! Home made pop dots - very cool! I am doing to have to try this as the thought of it! Great idea to use the scalloped square as corners - so very creative as is that gorgeous lace!

  5. Very nice design! I too make my own pop dots out of foam (use a hole punch to make them round, or cut into little squares) and adhere with tacky glue. Thanks so much for participating in this weeks AiFactory challenge!
