I always seem to post my challenge cards a week late... oh well! This was for last Monday's Try a New Technique challenge over on Splitcoast - I fell in love with these medallions and had to play!
I actually made a boo-boo on mine - can you spot it? Yep, it's meant to have 8 sections to the medallion, not 7. I wanted to use the second largest nestability instead of the large one that Bekka used in her tutorial but of course since it's smaller you can't get 8 'pieces of pie' from it - duh, yes maths was my worst subject in school!!
Anyway, I didn't want to start again so I just used the wide part as the bottom of the medallion and placed the ribbon down the centre which kinda looks like it was always meant to be that way! Next time though I'll follow instructions!
It's fun to make and I think makes for a very striking centrepiece for a card. The pattern is made by punching with a corner punch - I used the heart one as in the tutorial but different punches make for completely different looking medallions.
Thanks for stopping by!
