Oh my I have kept this quiet for a little while, although Ali did mention it and showed off my lovely little Wedding car a little while ago on the challenge blog, but today I can officially say I was thrilled to be asked to join the
and I am on the Ribbons Team, now if you know me and my ribbons and bows, well this just suits me down to the ground :) So I have now added the links to the shop in my where to shop page (well it was already there) and added the link to the challenge and inspirational blog in my side bar.
The challenge this week is
Stitching Real or Fake & Ribbons
I wanted to get started playing straight away, and had just ordered for a big Wedding order some wow shocking pink wide ribbon so decided to do a black and white card with a pop of colour, and yes Pink being the colour, I love how it turned out, hope you like too.
I made another of my half circle card, loving creating these with my grand nesties at the moment.
So I used on of those Hobby House Elisabeth Bell Art Colouring Book images and coloured in her monotone, well apart from a splash of hot pink. I used white for the base layer and the shocking pink card as the first colour layer and for the contrast, The papers well I remember stroking these for ages before a crafting friend gave me therapy and finally I opened the stack and dated to cut into them. They are Paris Nights, don't you just love a good flocked paper. I used a white gel pen to create my faux stitching. I created the sentiment on the computer and used a nestie to cut it out. I made a triple bow with that lush ribbon along with a fancy button and black rose from the Hobby House and some beautiful tulips again in shocking pink from Clickit4Crafts. I finished off with a few grey fern branches from my Marianne strip die, some shocking pink pearls and lots of those aura rhinestones from the Hobby House. All of the items used today can be found on the links in my Where I shop page.
The ribbon, which I have to say was ordered in by the wonderful Bev at Crafty Ribbons just for me, so is not in the store but you can like I did mail in to Bev who is wonderful and will help you in anyway with any special requirement.
Here is a close up of the copic coloured image and a little of that gorgeous satin ribbon
