There will be a special blog badge for the entry that WOWs us, and a separate random drawing for $20 off your next order at Serendipity Stamps. Mary will still be offering all those great specials - this week is Free Shipping on all continental US orders of $10 or more valid December 5-12, 2012.
We also have two new Design Team members joining us too! Mary Beth Lopez joins us for our very first blog challenge and Anya Schrier will re-join us from January! Wow, these ladies are both super talented so there will be lots of Serendipity inspired goodness to feast your eyes on!!
So, onto this challenge. We were asked to create a Honeycomb/Accordian effect on our cards. It's a relatively simple and fun technique to try - there is a tutorial HERE if you are not familiar with it.
I used some pretty Little Yellow Bicycle 'Twig' patterned paper for the background and 'Fuchsia Flowerdot' for the butterfly which I cut using Serendipity Stamps Butterfly die. The sentiment is so versatile - love it! and is from the 'Everyday Words Large Cling Set'. I simply stamped in Paris Dusk ink onto a hand cut banner. I finished with ivory ribbon bow and a Websters Pages sparkler!
