To keep in line with the reptile theme, I used the Tiny Mosaic embossing folder and then some paper from Basic Grey that I thought worked well with this. I also tried something new with this card, paper pleating. It definitely takes a bit of time to get the paper all scored and folded, but it adds a really nice touch. After pleating the paper, I distressed the edges of each pleat and then sponged them so they stood out a bit more.
Please join us this week and be sure to check out the rest of the DT as they all have some fabulous creations to share with you!
If you missed my High Hopes post, they have a new illustrator on board, the one and only Dustin Pike and I am happy to say that the KLSNS store will be carrying some of his new images! If you are not already familiar with Dustin's work I would highly suggest visiting his blog, you are in for a treat (and each week Dustin has a free digital image available). Kelly was lucky enough to have one of these new stamps in her hands, so you get a sneak peek of that today when you visit her blog.
