Hello everyone! I’m checking in with a Ribbon Carousel Challenge… this time a sketchy one! Don’t you just love a good sketch challenge?! It’s a great place to start your creation. So this week I’m sharing one of my “Go To” sketches!
We’d love for you to participate!!! Make sure you link up with us using the linking tool at the bottom of the Ribbon Carousel Challenge page. If you are uploading to an online gallery, make sure you use the keyword RCC6. You don’t need a blog to participate in our challenge and each week, the Carousel Crew members vote for their “Top Spools”. Maybe this week, it’ll be you! Head over to the Ribbon Carousel Challenge blog for all of the details on the contest and to find some pretty pictures of the creations by the design team! :)
For my card this week I used a cute image from Whipper Snapper Designs that I have had for a couple of months… and this is its first time seeing ink. I’m neglecting my cute stamps again. So sad… but hopefully this card will make up for it! :)
I stamped the image on ivory cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copic markers. I added a touch of glitter to the hearts and flowers using Copic Spica pens. I also added a touch of Glossy Accents to the flowers and the bird. Once dry the image was trimmed and matted on Early Espresso cardstock before adding Bisque Liquid Pearls along the edges.
For my ribbon I used a bit of Summer Sunrise poly-twill ribbon and then attached a button over it using some jute. More jute was used to sew another button to a crocheted flower (btw - I’ve added some of these flowers to my Etsy shop). The pretty designer papers are from a 6x6 Stella Rose – Hazel paper pad by My Mind’s Eye.
I hope you enjoyed my card and my sketch. We’d love to have you participate in the challenge. *** We just ask that your creation include ribbon, bakers twine, jute twine or lace (basically anything that comes on a spool). *** :)
