Lea's Kite



Lea's Kite, from Paper Makeup Stamps, was used to create this week's challenge from the Digi Makeover Challenge group - a tent topper.  If you're unsure how to make a tent topper card, here is a tutorial.



The white crayon resist technique was used so I could apply my Pan Pastels to create the background.  Next I paper pieced the kite and cut the image out using Sizzix scalloped ovals.  The sentiment is a rubber stamp from Unity Stamps and is cut with a MFT Sentiment Strips die.

Now it's your turn to show us your tent topper card.  You have one week to upload it to the Digi Makeover Challenge blog.  Please give a warm welcome to this week's guest designer Rachel Fisher and to our newest Digi Makeover Artist Ardilla.
