Trying a new technique – First Posted: Wednesday, January 13, 2010

I made this card a couple of days ago but I’ve been having some teething troubles with my new camera, it has lots of settings and features that I need to get used to but I think I have settled on a combination of settings that I’m happy with for now and I’ll tweek it a bit over time.

I want to try some new techniques so I had a peek at the technique challenge section on the Splitcoast Stampers Forum and chose Quilting for this card.

I picked 4 sheets of co-ordinating paper from the same paper pack and punched lots of squares from each using a square paper punch. I covered some lightweight card stock with double-sided sticky tape and stuck down my squares alternating them as I went until the whole area was covered. I popped it into my bigshot to shape it using the large spellbinders nested Butterfly which I shaped a little to add some dimension, I added some ribbon to represent the antennae and punched some small hearts from a glitter sticker sheet to use as a trail.
