The Ribbon Reel - Challenge#2
Monday, May 16, 2011
We're still without broadband.. day 12... I think. This is another scheduled post from another location!! Let's just say I hope if you're with 3 you never have any problems with your service! I guess we'll just have to wait! I'm getting pretty sick of that! Anyway, it's time for a new challenge at The Ribbon Reel Challenge blog. The theme is 'Shabby Strawberries and Cream' - create a card or project using the colors from the inspiration photo, use flowers and ribbon/baker's twine.
I used Spellbinders grommet tags for the label, the sentiment is from Dainty Doilies - Large Set by Waltzingmouse Stamps. The little heart stamp is Marianne Design. Under the label I pleated and sewed some gorgeous pink silky crush ribbon from The Ribbon Reel. (That silky crush ribbon is fabulous!!) I also layered some white crochet lace over cream twill ribbon and I tied a little pink and white Baker's twine over that.
The gorgeous flower stamp is from Roses in Bloom by Waltzingmouse Stamps. (How did I live without this stamp set for so long???) I colored it with acrylic paints. The leaves are stamped onto some light green paper.
Now pop over to The Ribbon Reel Challenge Blog and check out the fabulous creations from the rest of the design team AND don't forget to play along, there's another prize of ribbon up for grabs... and you can never have enough ribbon... right!! : ) Have a great week! Raining here...
