Technique Blog Hop - MARCH

This technique had me a little thrown initially until I realized I have used it more than I realize.  Some B&T papers lend themselves better to creating our own embellishments - for cards or layouts - but with a little creativity...

This month we were asked to highlight the technique on page 21 in the 2012 Spring/Summer Idea Book called, "B&T Duos Designs as Embellishments".  (We get twice as many choices since our B&T paper has a different pattern on each side.)  There are 14 of us participating in this hop so if you have come from Tonya's Blog you are on the right track.  You can view a list of the participants and begin the start of the hop by visiting Michelle's Blog.  In any case I hope you enjoy the blog and be sure to join us in highlighting this technique and having the opportunity to win some CTMH goodies.  You can find complete details by clicking HERE.

Using a Twilight B&T pattern for the base of this circle card, I then selected two images from the beautiful striped sheet of paper shown below (left).  Directions for this technique state to select portions of the B&T to use, trim the pieces, and adhere to project. I did just that, incorporating our new Florentine paper packet. I also took a piece of one of the stripes to create the heart stripe at the top of the card.

I made the dimensions 3-D by placing 3-D Foam Tape under each image and added some of our Mocha Opaques. 

I am pleased with the results and hope you agree!  Now, hop on over to Shirley's Blog where you will find another variation for this technique.

Be sure to check out our Techniquely Terrific Blog and participate in a fun challenge using this technique.  YOU COULD WIN SOME CTMH PRODUCTS!  Click here for more details.

Happy hoppin'!
