A spirelli card

Happy Monday. The weather has been pretty warm again today - about 60F. It was foggy this morning and rainy this afternoon. I even saw some flashes of lightning and heard thunder. It's hard to believe it's January.

Today the technique challenge on Splitcoast was number 150, so there was a bonus where we could pick a favorite from past challenges and use that on a card. I chose to do a spirelli corner.

I colored the flower with watercolor crayons and aqua painter and then highlighted with a regal rose marker. The spirelli is made with a needle and black crochet cotton, as are the sewn X's. The strip where the X's are is actually folded over toward the front and then stitched down. The sentiment is on a small oval punch layered over a round tab punch.

Supplies: stamps: embrace life, vases in vogue (SU)
ink: jet black stazon
paper: regal rose, apricot appeal, basic black, very vanilla
other: piercing tool, mat pack, needle, black crochet cotton, small oval punch, round tab punch, mounting tape

Thanks for stopping by.
