Making a Rosette with a Silhouette

To make up for the fact that I missed blogging in February (and nearly missed March too) here is an extra post...

I first designed the rosette perforations and scallops on Corel Draw X4 then I cut it on my Silhouette. I Distress inked the strip in the two colours (faded jeans and peeled paint) followed by the Archival Ink scribble heart stamp.

After gluing the two ends together, I was intrigued to see how different the rosette looked depending on which end I pushed down into the centre...

I have found that the best way to finally hold this together is to punch out a circle and then stick it down with a glue gun. It saves it popping off again later and makes it quite nice and firm.

Ticket Strips

Well, I have been playing with my silhouette and my stamps along with some distress inks and perfect pearls.

First I cut the ticket strips I designed in Corel X4

Then I stamped the images on using Archival Ink followed by various distress inks over the top and finally I stamped with perfect pearls clear and added the delish iridescent colours. Now I have some yummy tags to add to my cards and pages.
