I don’t usually do the Make It Monday PTI challenges but this one really spoke to me. You have to use a die as in dice, not a paper cutting die, to help you choose what products, stamps and sketch to use! I LOVE a good challenge!
You can check out the challenge here PTI Roll the Die Challenge. My work sheets are below. I used an iPhone app to ‘roll the die’ and circled each element as I rolled. I decided to photograph them so you’d know I didn’t cheat! I ended up working with: horizontal layout, sketch 2, Hibiscus Burst, Raspberry Fizz, white and black; Tiny Treats:Valentine, BB: Hearts and twine. I was thrilled by everything except the sketch, yikes! and having to make it horizontal, which as you’ll read below, I forgot as I created.
I have to admit, I made a few mistakes. I nipped the top off one of my white cardstock circles but I didn’t redo it as I knew it would be hidden under the ribbon. But, when I stamped and positioned it, I forgot I was supposed to use a horizontal layout! I was already finished when I realized so I turned the cupcake and sentiment circles and the heart button. But oops, now the hearts are sideways and I can’t turn it, A-because the little flaw would show and B-the adhesive I used to stick the ribbon is pretty heavy duty. I think I’d even have a hard time removing it to put in a new circle!
I also would have flipped the sketch right to left if had I planned it from the beginning. I really like any notched element like the ribbon to point towards the right. Is that weird? Is that because I am right handed? Because we read right to left? To be honest, I think I’ll flip it back. Everything worked out so well except that single, annoying element I forgot. I feel like this challenge whupped my butt! You may have noticed that my pink ink doesn’t look quite right. I assure you that it looks fine IRL!
