The challenge this week at 52CCT is to use Ribbon.
I often use ribbon but usually it's very thin and just as a decoration. For this I decided to make the ribbon the star. I had this lovely red ribbon which came off a Christmas present last year so, of course, I saved it.
I stamped the panel using Inky Doodles stamps and layered it up with the dotty background. A bit of fiddling with the ribbon and a printed topper and it's done. Oh and a gold line along the top. I wanted a red layer but didn't have the right shade. I would rather have done that but too late now.
I'm pleased with the simplicity of it and think I may make a few more similar. I still have some ribbon.
I'm signing off for a few weeks now. We are moving house next week and I have had to pack up my ink pads (sigh). I'm not sure how long it will be before I get a new crafty corner set up. I've made a few cards for unexpected birthdays but I think I'll miss it before long. I hope I'll get a few minutes to follow a few blogs so as not to be completely out of touch. More likely I'll be lying down in a darkened room.
I'm linking here to 52 Christmas Card Throwdown and
Pixies Snippets Playground - snippets of card and ribbon.
See you all soon.
