Woodware sketch challenge

The main element on this card, besides the lovely flower of course, is the panel made from strips of Magenta papers. I learnt the technique with Susan Pickering Rothermel and just love making them!
I've used USArtQuest products and Magenta papers. Us
ing a piece of thick chipboard, any size will do, cover it with Great Tape (PPA201). Cut up a collection of patterned papers into strips of different widths and lengths.
Begin with one piece and stick to the sticky chipboard, continue to cover the chipboard creating a mosaic design all over. Don't worry if your strips are too long and hang over the edge.
Once you have covered the chipboard trim any strips. Take a contrasting ink pad and colour the edges of the chipboard. Using Perfect Paper Adhesive in gloss (PPA104) pour a generous fifty pence piece size piece of glue into the centre of the chipboard and spread around the surface using a palette knife (or an old credit card!), add more glue if need be. Allow to dry. This can take about an hour.
The finished result is a glossy masterpiece! Want to be more creative? Why not sprinkle Mica Flakes, Mica Delights or micro beads all of which are available from Woodware.
