PTI blog hop - scallops



The challenge - to incorporate scallops.  There are five scallops altogether - Fillable frame #4 is the mat, the sentiment is on two of the 'scalloped' die cuts from Limitless Layers circles, which themselves form a scallop shape, and then the button are arranged in somewhat of a scallop.


I stamped the bird images onto felt (which made a faint outline) and then cut out by hand, and then outlined with a T4 copic.  I had a great time picking out my buttons - probably the most time intensive part of this project!


Supplies; Stamps - Little bitty bird, Paper - Library Ledger PP, cream, kraft, fine linen, Ink - dark chocolate, T4 copic, Other - buttons (New leaf, Hawaiian shores, Aqua mist, cream), dies (Fillable Frame 4, Limitless Layers circles 1 3/4''), felt (Hawaiian shores, Simply chartreuse), twine.
