OCC....Paper Weaving

Good Morning Peeps!! It is Saturday and that means it is time for another new challenge at Our Creative Corner.

This week our challenge hostess is the fabulous Jen Rzasa from Our Change of Art. Jen has challenged us this week to do some paper weaving on our card or project. I weaved a lattice trellis for my flowers on my card. I started with a base of white card stock and then added some marina mist and then the weaved piece. I made this piece by first cutting out the center with a Nestiablities Die, Label 4. I then ran it through the big shot with my dot folder. I then turned it over and added some double stick tape around the opening. I cut several small strips to weave and used my grid paper to line it up, that part is a bit fussy, getting the strips woven AND lined up. I added a piece of Marina Mist DS paper behind the weaved section.

I used a couple of flowers from the new Flower Fest stamp set from Stampin' Up. I stamped with black stazon onto water colored paper and used poppy parade ink to color in. I used pear pizzazz for the leaves and added some yellow brads to the center of the small ones. 

The sentiment comes from the Something to Celebrate stamp set and I stamped with black stazon and matted with more Marina Mist. I curled and cut the end to make the flag.
I added some basic pearls to the corners and called it done.

I hope you’ll play along this week and have fun with this challenge! Be sure to check out the rest of the OCC design team creations!
