Miss Muffett

The theme today at Top Tip Tuesday is "spooled items".  I've chosen to use cotton (for stitching the panels), sheer butterfly ribbon and some floral cut felt ribbon.  I took the inspiration for my colour scheme from the glittered paper. I've used this paper pad loads, but have not used much of this actual page from it, so I thought I'd use it today.

I cut out a square from the backing paper leaving a larger frame, and then matted the square I'd cut out onto purple card, and then stuck it back down over the frame I'd created.  The purple matting card had made the inner square larger, so that it easily covered the join, and it gives some more interest to the backing paper.  But hopefully you can see that the design on the paper flows from the inner panel to the outer one.  For example, the butterfly in the top left corner has it's left wing on the outer panel, and it's right wing on the inner panel, lined up perfectly.
