Hi Crafty Peeps! Hope you are having a lovely weekend. I've found some time in between trying to tidy my craft space to make a card for Less is More which this week has a sketch to follow. See below.
I had a picture in my head of using ruffled ribbon so reached for my Rose Red Seam Binding. I chose a Rose Red card base and a dramatic mat of Basic Black. I wanted to use a Ribbon Slide (retired) but with bling added to the middle so attached 3 Basic Rhinestones. Thankfully they come in a strip so wasn't difficult to attach to the centre post. I stamped the flowers from Bordering on Romance in Basic Black and used a Blender Pen to colour it in with Rose Red, Certainly Celery and Regal Rose. I added a touch of Frost White Shimmer Paint to the flowers for a touch of sparkle. The sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes is stamped in Rose Red.
Now to ruffle the ribbon I pulled a thread from the middle, (actually I pulled several because I kept pulling them all the way through!) Doh!! How to stop it unruffling was the next challenge. I tried singeing the end but only succeeded in setting the ribbon on fire! So in the end I've tucked the ribbon behind the panel stuck down with Red Sticky Strip. My husband came in and wondered what on earth I'd been doing with the matches!!
I'm off to rid the house of a burning smell now. Keep crafting but stay safe! (Don't play with matches!!) x
