In the Middle Sympathy

Ann Clack here with a technique from the most recent newsletter.  This is called In the Middle.  I changed it up a little by using a border stamp instead of drawing a line.  I think it jazzes is up a little.  Sometimes your mistakes make something even better!  I originally punched the bottom of the panel but my punching wasn't much to be desired so I cut it off.  After punching a better scallop edge on a separate piece of paper, I cut it narrow and mounted below the original panel.  I like it better this way!  In retrospect I could have put little pearls on each scallop for some bling.  Maybe I will!  Hope you enjoy.  The green swirl is from Prickly Pear stamps.  I really love that swirl!!  The purple flowers and blue butterflies are from an Inkadinkado set....same with the border.  The words (there are some on the inside that go with the outside sentiment are unknown.  I got them at a Rubber Stamp Convention ages ago.  I know this because they have the hook and loop on the back of them.  That was the first type of unmounteds that I did.  Now I just use Tack N Peel with bare rubber.  Much easier!
