Sorry I haven't been around for a while. We had some time away, which was lovely, but things haven't been that great since we got back. Anyhow...onwards and upwards.
Today is the start of another challenge at the Pretty Little Ribbon Shop blog. This month it was my turn to choose the theme, and I thought it would be fun to see your cards/projects with lots of layers. That could be layers of card, paper, flowers, embellishments, or all all of them, whatever you like to use.
Here are my two creations...
First of all, for a change, I made a wall hanging...
Using tuxedo black ink, I stamped one of the frames from the Spring Rose Medallions set by JustRite stamps onto white card. I coloured my image with promarkers, and then stamped the bird on a branch from the same stamp set. I cut around the bird image and attached it to my frame.
I then attached the frame to a Spellbinders floral oval die. I layered these onto a plain oval in pale green pearl. I embossed some white card with a sizzix embossing folder, then fussy cut around the embossed shape.
I then layered onto more pale green pearl and finally some embossed white card. To complete, I added my hanger bow with tail, and the sweet little bird cage charm.
My second creation is a doily card...
I must be in green and blue mood, as both my projects use these colours. For my card I started off by stamping an image from the Botanical Butterflies set by JustRite stamps. I stamped with black onto white card, and coloured with pro markers.
I layered onto a Spellbinders splendid circles die, and then onto the Cheery Lynn English Tea Party doily in pale pearl green. I cut a matching shaped card on my Cameo, and attached the doily onto that. Finally, I added my duo ribbon bow and leaf pins.
25mm Sky Blue Organza Ribbon - 15mm White Satin Ribbon & Leaf Pins are from the Pretty Little Ribbon Shop.
