Today's Try a New Technique Challenge at SCS was Tapestry of Life, to use the tapestry technique. I never did this before. It was really simple to do, and I LOVE how my background came out. Unfortunately, I don't like the overall card. I got this clear stamp set a couple of weeks ago because I just LOVED it. I just can't seem to make the images work for a focal image. With this card, I tried faux stitching around the starfish thinking that would give it more focus, but I'm not sure it worked. I'll keep playing around and see what I can come up with. Have a great day! SUPPIES USED: Stamps- MSE!
