Hello all of my fellow ribbon lovers! It's time for a new challenge over at the Really Reasonable Ribbon blog today, and we have some exciting news to share! not only do you have a chance to win ribbons from the RRR store, but some lucky person has a chance to win some beautiful digital collage sheets from Polly's Paper Studio, our sponsor for this challenge. :)
our theme for this fortnight is 'Anything Goes with ribbon or trims,' so have fun creating! I can't wait to see what you make! please be sure to stop by the RRR blog to see what some of my teamies have come up with. they really do make the most gorgeous things! :)
for my cards today, I have combined images from the St. Patrick's Bingo Collage Cards with ribbons from the new monthly club kit. green is my fave color, so this pack really made me swoon! :) btw - if you ever have questions about individual ribbons in the kit, please don't hesitate to ask me or any of the other DT members. we will always do what we can to help you out.
I matted each of the little cards and sprayed them with my SU! ink squirty tool. paper is from the Authentique Charmed collection. card bases are sprayed with glimmer mist for that extra bit of shine. you know how much I love the dies in the Tim Holtz Handwritten series. the 'lucky' seemed perfect to use for a St. Patrick's Day theme! the words were covered in rock candy distress stickles.
the white of the green gingham plaid was a bit too stark, so I ran the ribbon across my crumb cake ink pad to distress. it took the ink perfectly and gave it the vintage look I wanted. gold doilies, tags, and vintage buttons make the ideal embellishments. of course flowers were needed, so a few mulberry chrysanthemums, lillies, and open roses in shades of green add the finishing touches.
thank you so much for stopping by! I do hope you will play along in our new challenge! and I hope you will also stop by Polly's Paper Studio to see her gorgeous store! :)
enjoy your weekend!
