Bottle Cap Challenge!

For this Fun Filled Friday Challenge, I was challenged by one of my readers, Tami, to create a card using bottle caps. I have not used bottle caps in so long! It was good to get them out again & bang away! LOL! What a stress reliever!

To make this card, I first stamped the tulip image on white cardstock. I then, paper pieced the tulip flowers from pink patterned paper and the stems from green patterned paper. I shaded in the background with blue chalk and then used a sponge dauber with blue ink, and a scallop punch-out to create the clouds. I love how the clouds makes this card look like a field of tulips! Don't you agree?

Next, I matted the image with light blue cardstock and then again with light green cardstock. I cut an A2 size cardstock base and adhered the matted image to it. I used hot pink ribbon on the upper left corner and bottom right corner as shown to help add a little dimension.

Then it was time for the fun part--to add the bottle cap to my project by smashing away! I computer generated the sentiment & then printed it out on pink cardstock. I used my 1" circle punch to punch it out and inked the edges with pink ink. Then, I adhered the sentiment circle to the center of the bottle cap, and used glue dots to adhere the bottle cap to my card.
