OWH Sketch #51/ My first paper quilting
Not long after I started making cards (June '10) someone posted a link to a video on CardzTV.com about "card quilting". I saved it in my Favorites and just now got around to trying it. Making the quilt square was fun -- the hardest part was picking out the papers. It's a good project for little scraps. I distressed the paper edges with Ranger Ink and put a CB'd strip in the background. I didn't want to cover up the quilt square, so I tucked the circle element underneath. I thought the sentimen went well with being warm and cozy under a quilt!
My quilt square and matting aren't exactly square, oh well! It was fun --the closest I've ever come to real quilting, lol! I'm glad I could use it for OWH Sketch 51!
I hope that "quilting" video is still up on CardzTV; it's been a while. Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!
