Loving Lilac

The new September kit is now available over at Raspberry Ribbons and I have to say that this one is my fave to date.
It's called Loving Lilac .... and I am lol xx It is GORGE xxxx
Here are some of my cards for this month, and you can check out the other DT lovelies work which is ab fab natch, HERE
Papers are PP, the brads are Making Memories and the frame is Craftwork Cards

The stamp is by Stampendous and I used Versamark and chalks for a softer effect.
And just when you thought I'd put it way, ta dahhhhh, here it is ... my MSBP (heee heee) with PP paper, some acetate and Tilda coloured with Prismas

TFS and have a great evening xxxx

Now, now you little temptress....

... just as you teach me how to knot a ribbon to make waves you gather lilacs and set me salivating for more.

You are a minx -and I love you for it.

But how are you making those cute bunches of ribbons and bows?

I assume the simplest ones are two or three lengths of ribbon knotted and then worked until the arrangement works.

But what about the very first frou-frou? That card is THE best BTW. I'm intrigued as to that ribbon embellishment tho'. How many different ribbons did you use? And what was the process? I love the dinky thinner bits of ribbon there playing hide and seek.

Please tell?

Yours, in desperation and with itching fingers!!!

You asked what that Sizzix die was I have just looked through 929 dies on Crafty Devils and cannot see it, it is quite old and all it has on the die is Sizzix Decorative Accents, hope you can find it cos I use it loads. Sorry not much help, have a good evening Honey#
