CCEE1435 Herringbone

For her last Challenge, Amber has chosen the Herringbone Technique.  She calls it a fun technique using up scraps of paper.  Well, it does use up scraps of paper, but it was more involved than just fun!!! (But that's me!!)  Here's mine:


It took a while to find papers that went together, but I finally found some.  Then I had to find a bigger piece!  I added some die cuts, and a ribbon, and now that it's done I really like it!!

I made my own enamel dots, using Perler beads, and baking in the oven on parchment paper for 35 min at 325 degrees. 

Join us.  Please remember if you post your card to add the keyword CCEE 1435.  See you next month with a new hostess.

  5. I love the soft greens on your card, Anne. And using the same DP for the bicycle die was a great idea. Love the card!

  6. You did great making your own dots - I couldn't believe how expensive they are!! My problem with this technique is I never have scraps that go together so I usually pull three or four sheets from a pad, which kind of defeats the purpose! I love the panel with the bicycle and tree-line!
