Deconstructed DS 112 and 113 Challenge


You get 2 Deconstructed challenge cards this time because I didn’t get 112 done until after the deadline.  I’ll start with 113.

Deconstructed DS 113 croppedI came up with  a technique I hadn’t thought of before.  I decided to place a row of pearls at the bottom of the card and I wanted them evenly spaced.  Most of the time I just eyeball it but the more pearls there are to be placed, the more likely that they will go wonky.  I laid my row of pearls (still on their backing) where I wanted them on the card and then placed a sticky note directly below them.  I then made little tick marks to show where each pearl was to be placed and then put the pearls on  the card.  The sticky note ensured that not only were the pearls evenly spaced but that they were all the same height.  Wish I had have thought of that a long time ago!  Here is the picture with the sticky note in place:Deconstructed DS113 closeup of post a note '13 cropped

All of the papers are from American Crafts “Color Crush” 6×6 pad.

I white embossed both the turquoise hexagon and the sentiment and then used an embossing folder to add dimension to the sentiment hexagon.

Sentiment: unknown; Hexagons: Hero Arts Hexagon Stamp and Cut ;Martha Stewart edge punch: Lattice Arch; Cutttlebug embossing folder: Swiss Dot

Sentiment: unknown; leaf die cut: Sizzix Little Leaf; Stickles
