Well it appears I am running behind on most things this week - I don't know why - I guess that's just how it goes sometimes. I missed out on the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge last week and for sure didn't want to miss out this week. Sometimes the sketch immediately talks to me, sometimes I have to kick it around in my head a while. This one took me a while. I knew immediately that I would be putting a cameo in the circle but the rest of the design eluded me for a while.
To get the scrunched ribbon look I wrapped seam binding around the card three times and then tied it together with string in the middle under the cameo. To make the rosette/yo-yo I weaved the same seam binding into the lace ribbon and then pulled it to the right size - I wanted the melon seam binding to frame the cameo. You know I had to get my touch of bling in there so I added a few glass beads onto the tag strings. I used Versamagic chalk ink to get full coverage on these solid stamps. I like how the vintage cameo and tag look with the bright colors.
