Make It Monday Challenge #11



Hola, amigas (and Ted)! ;-D Here is my entry for this week's Make It Monday Challenge for Papertrey Ink. This week's challenge is to emboss using the steel dies PTI offers. I went really different for this one . . . I used the triangle pennant dies from the Banner Builder Collection. After embossing Pure Poppy cardstock with the pennants, I carefully cut out around each one, so that the embossing (debossing, actually) would be an integral part of each petal. I stamped on each petal in Versamark with the zig zag image from BB: Christmas, built a flower one petal at a time, and then centered it with a colorful brad. What do you think? Well, it seemed like a good idea at 4 a.m., LOL! I had a fun Spanish theme in mind because I couldn't wait to use the Fiesta paper pad from WeRMemoryKeepers--ole!

Supplies
Stamps: PTI--Turning a New Leaf & Background Basics: Christmas; The Cat's Pajamas--Hola Tequila!
Paper: PTI--S.S. White, Pure Poppy, New Leaf; WeRMemoryKeepers--Fiesta
Ink: PTI--New Leaf, Pure Poppy; Versafine--Onyx Black; Versamark; Embossing Powder--Filigree Clear
