When I saw this set my first thought was that I was going to use Basic Grey's Archaic paper and I was going to paper piece the costume. When I found this pattern, I knew I had it. I think it looks like "scales"--what do you think? I stamped the image on a Perfect Paper Panel and colored with Copics and paper pieced, then cut it out and popped it up. I love how the Perfect Paper Panel adds so much body to a cut out/popped up image. My layout is pretty simple. I added a strip of natural twill and some twine and a button from MFT's Chocolate Kiss collection, some antique copper brads, and a punched out sentiment panel and it was done.
And, of course, I *had* to use one of our new Die-namics dies to cut the border from cork. I'm using the Jumbo Scallop die--I love how deep the scallops are and how they are such a perfect oval. Again, I used my normal Cuttlebug sandwich and it breezed right through with a perfect cut. This, and two other dies (Scalloped Scallop, and Clouds), will be available May 5th at 10:00pm EDT.
