DT: Craftyhazelnuts patterned paper challenge 

Hello.  How quickly did June go past? Wowser half the year gone! 

So as it’s the first of the month I have a design team project to share with you that I did for Craftyhazelnuts patterned paper challenge. 

The challenge is to use patterned paper and so I grabbed some of mine from the stash and created a card for my Mums birthday (which isn’t until next month but hey I’m organised for once!). 

I chose three papers from the same pack. Unfortunately forgotten what the name of the pack was and layered them up, inking each of the edges I tore.  I stamped the Tim Holtz butterfly a few times lightly and spritzed it with water to oxidize the background… yes I had used my beloved oxides. I let it dry and then did a mammoth amount of sewing on the machine. I thought this gave it a nice patchwork type effect.

Next I took a kraft card tag and added the doily and part of the patterned paper I had cut out. I added some trim which I had got in a swap and then stamped and cut out another of the butterflies to layer up. 

The sentiment was also stamped on the same patterned paper and then I took a stamp with the word Mum and added that too. 

Finished off with the tiny pearl gems from stampin up scattered across the card. 

Love how this came out. Now off to see what the rest of the DT have been up to this month with their patterned paper stash. 

Happy crafting!
