SDC ~ Squares, squares, squares

This week's theme for the ~{Stampotique Designer's Challenge}~ is to use at least 3 squares on your project and has been set by the lovely ~{Val}~.  I made this card:


I stamped ~{Oh ... Tree}~ directly onto the card blank, then stamped just the hooks of the baubles from ~{Mini Christmas Ornaments Cube}~ and ~{Christmas Ornaments Cube}~ onto the tree using my trusty stamp positioner. I then stamped 3 of the baubles onto card, coloured them with Copics, cut them out and stuck them in place. I also stamped a bird from the ~{Birds and Bugs Cube}~ and tried to turn it into a robin of sorts.

I took 3 square fragments and ran a Copic chisel tip around the edge for a slight border before sticking them in place over the baubles with Glossy Accents. This was a bit tricky as too much GA and you get a nasty mess, so I don't think I put enough on! Oh well! Here's a close up of the squares.



Head on over the the ~{SDC Blog}~ to see what the other designers have come up with and join in the fun. You don't have to use Stampotique stamps and, at the end of the month, there will be a draw to win a $30 Gift Certificate to spend at the ~{Stampotique Store}~.
