Weekend Wildcard - Aug. 27, 2022


Recommended Posts

For this weekend's challenge I have picked an embellishment type that I seldom use yet always admire: MATTES! Your task is to layer them up, using at least three. Try to avoid simply stacking up some cropped papers, and pick out those mattes with character, such as tattered edges, lacy edges, patterned edges, curled edges, cut-outs, large paper ephemera, etc.

Some designers, like Angie Briggs, Tami Miller, Syndee Rogers and Brandy Murry package them frequently with their Value Packs. Others will include one or two unique matte elements occasionally with their kits. Hunt through your stash, or see these sources below:
