Ladybug Spots and Lines

For this idea I wanted to try the line frame in a circle. I used my Colluzle to cut a circle one size in from the white circle I cut for my Little Lady ladybug. I stamped the ladybug and sentiment and then used a Zig Millenium pen .005 and traced around the smaller circle that I had laid in the center, careful not to hit the ladybug. I added the black dots the the ends of my frame to sort of fnish it off (plus it kinda goes with the ladybug spots.) I used a gel pen to highlight the ladybugs spots. I stamped the smallest flower from the set randomly in black on a Pure Poppy strip and added white gel pen to the centers and mounted the strip on the lower portion of my black card base. I offset my ladybug circle over that. (I love how this worked out.)

Before I realized my Millenium pen would do so well, I tried it with red. But I didn't like the uneveness. So then I decided to try the "messy on purpose" approach. Better but I still like the solid black line much more. :)

I made a few of them on round note cards to go along with the spots theme.

Line Frame in Black and White

This week's make it Monday challenge from PTI was to create a broken line frame. I wanted to try it another color other than black (as shown in the video). So I used my PTI anniversary set from a couple of years ago and stamped on black cardfront with Fresh Snow ink. Then using the directions from the video I made my frame with white gel pen. Last I mounted it on a basic white card base to keep the whole card in the black and white theme.
