Ways to use it challenge card

I'm not really sure why, but I've never done any of the ways to use it challenges on SCS. I finally did one today though =). It was WT164 All Ruffled up. The challenge was to make pleats or ruffles so I made some by folding DSP back and forth. The DSP was 1/2" by 18". I just taped the paper together inside one of the ruffles.

The inside of the flower looks like it was colored with Pretty in Pink, but all I did was use a blender pen to drag the color from the Pomegranate outlines. It works great. The flower fusion flower looks kinda funny in the picture. It doesn't look so bad IRL. -Stamp-One of a Kind, Priceless
-Ink-Close to Cocoa, Purely Pomegranate
-Paper-Close to Cocoa, Purely Pomegranate, Pretty in Pink and Whisper White cardstock; Rose Red prints DSP.
-Accessories-Flower Fusion, Styled Silver HPH, Pretty in Pink grosgrain and SAB rub-on sentiment.

This is lovely Emily! I love the ruffled paper at the bottom, looks a little like a ruffle peeking out under a fabulous skirt!

Love the color combo, and the ruffles look great. Pulling the color from the outline into the image is a great technique too!
