Stamp Off DSP Rescue with Flourish Thinlits

Yippee.  I'm so glad that you have landed at my site,
to check out our Stamp Off challenge, hosted by
Buffy, Susan and myself.  We're happy to have you!
Our challenge today is "DSP to the Rescue".  I love 
Designer Series Paper because it perks up a card,
provides ideas for color combinations I would not 
think of, and adds texture to projects.  Stampin' Up! offers
lots of DSP choices, so you are in for a treat.

I saw this technique offered several years ago, but don't 
remember the exact name; perhaps "Torn Paper".
At any rate, that's what I did.  I took strips of the 
2016-18 In Color Envelope paper on page 176, tore it
into pieces and glued it to a piece of card stock.  This technique adds so much color and texture, that it's really fun. After the glue
had dried, I embossed the panel with clear embossing powder.
Then I created a pattern with elements from the Flourish
Thinlits on page 194, adhering them to a piece of Early Espresso
card stock.   The sentiment came from my fav resource for
words; the Sunshine Sayings set on page 97.  
 I added In Color Enamel Shapes to complete the look.
Thank you so much for checking out my Stamp Off project.
Now hop on over to see the WONDERFUL projects offered
by Susan and Buffy

I love this technique, Jackie! It looks like a patchwork quilt. And the colors are lovely together. The background works so well with the Flourish elements.

I agree with BUffy and Susan - it does look like a patchwork quilt, Jackie! Great combination of colours, and I like the enamel shapes added. Thanks for sharing!
