Creative Scallops~Challenge~Tutorial~

Hi everyone! Hope you all had a wonderful week. I want to say thank you to all who played in our last challenge. It was so much fun to see everyone's creations. Well today not only are you getting a challenge but a tutorial as well!
OK so for the details:
This challenge is ALL about Scallops.
This could be in the form of a border punch, die cuts, edges, stamped images, anything with a scallop. I used scallops on mine but I also used the faux silk technique. I used Girl's" Weekend. This was one set I HAD to have. I still have girls night at my house and we do girls weekends. I could see so many things to use this set for.

The above picture is everything I used for my project. A scoring tool, tissue paper, the already pre-cut cardstock and of course mod podge.I scored my cardstock. This card is a 5x5 card. One of my favorite size cards to make!!!!
Ink and stamp your images onto tissue paper, be sure to have something underneath (I prefer to stamp on some blank printer paper). The ink will bleed through the tissue paper. (If you use an outline image stamp in black and then color the image.)
Crumple the tissue up a few times, careful not to tear it. You can smooth it now or smooth it onto your image. You do not want to smooth to much as the “wrinkles” are what makes it look like silk.Using a small sponge brush, apply mod podge over the entire surface of the neutral card stock. You may also use a glue stick but you will want to make sure the glue dries clear.
Carefully place your tissue over the top of your neutral cardstock and smooth down. You will want to expect a few bumps and wrinkles. That is OK! It makes it look like silk.Allow to dry for a few minutes and then use scissors to trim off the excess tissue, or you can cut you new “silk” cardstock to size and finish your card.My scallops was the punch! I was thinking about making the edge scalloped but though that would be overkill. Now that you've seen mine you know it could be as many scallops as you want or just a hint of scallops.

OK now for the fun stuff! We want you to play along! Get some inspiration and show us your creativity!!! Of course their are rules. You must be a Creative Clear Stamps follower (super easy!
