Sweet Patchwork Card for Studio 75
using Splash it! Collection





Hello again everyone!  Today you can find me up on the Studio 75 blog HERE
sharing a simple idea that I think is very effective!  When you have a lot of 
left-over papers creating a patchwork is a good way to use them all up!


All you do is cut your off-cut pieces of paper into rectangles to fit your space.  
You can use this technique on a card, layout, tag or anything you like!

  Start in one corner & measure your pieces accordingly, to fit across your space. 
 For better effect ink your edges to give more dimension & to finish off nicely, 
use a black fine-liner pen to draw some fake stitching!  

Please remember Emelia's FLOWER challenge is closing on the 2nd October
 2015.  We would love you to join in with us & show us what you create!
