FSS Challenge



Here is my attempt at Deanne's theme for the FSS Challenge.  I used Fred's Flowers v6 Daisies and cut out an included frame and sponged it with distress ink and coloured the flowers with pencils. I tried a ruffled border punch tutorial which can be found HERE using a border punch and a crimper :)  I also inked the border ruffle with distress inks.  I love distress inks LOL!

The monthly challenge is still on and runs until Feb 21st so you still have lots of time to play :)  and get a chance to win $20 gift certificate to the Fred She Said store.

Have a great day!
:)*  Fred

Fred, I love all your designs, You have become my NEW "best friend"!!
Being new to the digital crafts I do have one question.....do you use pop dots between the layers when you are layering a design?
Thank you
Jeane

Hi Jeane! I use pop dots as well as silicone glue ( comes in a tube... you can get it for 3D decoupage.. in a small tube but I get all-purpose silicone sealant clear in a tube... it can be found in hardware stores). I put little blobs ( scraping the "bump" squeezed out using a kebob stick LOL) under about 3-4 of my flower petals and lightly push flower onto project while mainting the dimensionality of the glue. I helps keep the flowers from flattening out.
