Spring Stretch ~ Gypsy challenge
This week's Gypsy Challenge is called Spring Stretch. It is a spring theme using the stretch and flatten technique on the Gypsy. In my family, spring means baseball season so I did a small baseball embellishment for my first project.
I used the Baseball Cartridge and Base Camp. I put all three layers of the baseball player on my mat and grouped them. Then I stretched them to the size I wanted. I then put the letters and the shadows on the mat, grouped them and stretched them. I welded the shadow letters together and then welded them to the blackout shadow of the baseball player. I did not weld the letters (that I cut out in blue) because there was no overlap.
I used blue for the uniform and letters because it matches my son's uniform color.
