Just Buggin Blog Hop Challenge

Here's #2 on the challenge list. This challenge was to take ANY die-cut and alter it. I have two. I have been working on a fall page for a swap and this challenge inspired me to get moving on the embellishments for it.

The first is a pumpkin cut from the Happily Ever After cartridge. To alter it, I also cut an oval, inked all the edges and placed the oval in the middle before I glued down the stem.

The second is a sunflower I created in SCAL by welding a spade and a rectangle together. All the little petals are made individually and inked. The 1" circle in the center is embossed with the swiss dots folder. Taadaaa, sunflower!!

Ok, off to the next challenge. I think I'll get these embellishments totally done so I can finish the layout totally because Practical Scrappers challenge is to use dies cuts.

Off I go......
