Today I have a challenge card for the Shabby Tea Room's Popsicles and Pinwheels challenge. Isn't this a great little inspiration picture?
I had fully intended to use my Cosmo Cricket DeLovely paper, but I wasn't sure how to shabby it up properly. When I remembered the quilt-patterned sheet from my Fly a Kite pad (October Afternoon), I knew that it would work for the "pinwheels" aspect of the challenge.
Of course, a quilt patterned paper needed some quilt blocks! I pulled out my JustRite Stampers Appliqué Border and Center set for the focal image. Ink was varied: Papertrey's Raspberry Fizz, Versamagic Tea Leaves and Turquoise Gem, and Clearsnap Rouge Fluid Chalk, shabbied up with some Papertrey Ink Chamomile Distress Ink.
I used some Spellbinders dies to cut the mats for my quilt squares, though I punched the quilt squares to give them a little more room on the outside than I would have gotten with my nested die. I used the Scalloped Square Nestability for the quilt base and two nested Plain Square dies for the sentiment in the center.
Vintage white button and 1/8" silk ribbon are both from Papertrey Ink; I dyed the ribbon with one an R83 Copic Marker.
Be sure to see what the Shabby Tea Room Team has come up with this week. If you participate in their challenge and link as directed, you might win a nice prize there. Good luck, and thanks for stopping by today!
