it is the journey...

Actually, the title of this post should be *it is the EFFORT*!

Today's Technique Lover's Challenge was to do a medallion.  See instructions HERE.  My corner punches are not the *right* ones to use for this challenge.  BUT I do have a picture holder corner punch--so I figured--hey, it is just one piece of cardstock--might as well try it.   I ended up with a cute octagon that POPPED out of the middle of the circle (Note to self: Next time I need a stop sign....).  But that was NOT what I was hoping for...

Then I looked closer at the outer circle...hmmmmm. If I took two squares of paper....and fit them in the slots....ummmmm.  Well, I thought it wasn't half bad.  With the right dp--it might even look cool--but I stuck with good ole' gray.

TLC193--the journey

The images are from Starving Artistamps.   The bee is from the Bees Sheet and the sentiment is from "hogs and kisses" sentiment set.

The image was stamped with Palette Noir ink and colored with Prismacolor markers. 

There are three dew droppy thingies on the lower right, they show up better IRL--as does the Stardust Stickles on the wings.  But as always, you can click on the picture for a larger view.

Thanks for stopping by!  And now, if you were wondering if TLC193 would work with the corner slot punch....um...it kinda does.Winking
