The Diva's Weekly Challenge #261: Stacked

When I first saw "stacked" in this week's Diva challenge, by guest blogger Jane Reiter, I was thinking of stacked tangles. When I saw the stacked papers, I thought, "Whoa! This may be out of my league!"
But then it all came together, with leftover card stock from my French teacher days and Moonlight Gelly Rolls. I had fun doing the line work, "one stroke at a time." The final result reminds me of a Day of the Dead fiesta with the papel picado. I've decided to send it to an 11-year old friend in El Salvador who wants to be an artist. I thought he'd have fun deconstructing it!)


Thanks for your visit! Comments are always welcome! Have a colorful week!

  4. That does indeed remind me of Day of the Dead colors I remember from Mexico. I like the way you put them together and I'm more than a little ashamed that I kind of faked mine.

    1. Once I found that colored card stock, in 5 colors, my paper cutter and Gelly Rolls, I was on my way. But I had anticipated that it would be too time-consuming to even try! #younevercantell
