Challenge 383 – Sequin Tree

We had a great sketch over at TSOT this week and I just had to play along. I decided I want to try to use sequins in a new way so I used them as the fall leaves on my tree.  I used glue dots to stick them on and was able to layer them a little to fill in some gapes.

Scrap Busting Fall Card

I decided to make a card with all the scraps I had from making all these cards from my kit from Creative Escape Papercrafting. 

This was a little hard since I went with angles but it was fun to cut different strips.

Nuvo Drop Experiments

I dont use Nuvo drops or Stickles very much but I received a bottle in my DT package. I wanted to figure out a way to use them differently from just adding dots to something as an accent. 

The first thing I tried was using it like embossing paste. Unfortunately it is just a little too liquid and caused me to rip the paper when i pulled the stencil off. But the ones that turned out crisp did have great dimension. I even tried paper that could take more moisture but it still ripped. 

So I decided to use a make up sponge to add the drops through the stencil. Not all of them were crisp. but this worked better and left the panel with lovely texture from the sponge. 

Here is my finished card with the panel with Nuvo drops sponged through the stencil. This at least didnt rip the paper. 

Most supplies came from the Add on Kit for September Kit at Creative Escape Papercrafting. 

The mug stamp is from May May Made It – Cuppa Cuppa.
