Are you addicted to ribbons and trims of lace, satin, twill, grosgrain, seam binding, paper flowers, buttons and so much more? Well I know I am! And I know just the place to find all the fab things that I love! Why The Ribbon Reel of course! Their blog challenge is one of my favorite places to play! I am always challenged by their sketches and inspired by the gorgeous creations by their design team! I am thrilled and honored to be the Guest Designer for the month of August at The Ribbon Reel Challenge Blog!! This is the second and final challenge for the month - challenges are every two weeks.This is the inspiration photo. Some kind of baby shower huh? You are to create something using the colours in the photo as well as a banner / pennant. So many beauties in this photo that there should be no problem getting a little inspiration... stripes, polka dots, pennants, flowers, ruffles - it's all up to you. The Ribbon Reel Challenges last two weeks so you have lots of time to think about what you want to do and MAKE SOMETHING!!
I made this baby card with Waltzingmouse Stamps and lots of gorgeous trims and extras from the ribbon reel. The mulberry paper flowers were originally off white. I colored them with a Powder Blue Copic - just running the brush tip along the edges. Since the flowers are paper they absorb the ink easily. I left one of them white so you can see what they looked like originally. Here's a close up of the banner.
And here is my finished card.
Thanks for stopping by for a peek. I hope you will join me this week and play along!
