Hi sweet peeps and hope you are all OK and not under 6 feet of snow – blimey it came down heavy last night didn't it!!!
Well today is a very special day because it’s the very first one of these ……..
…. how fab.
Ribbons and Tilda – could you get a nicer combi, and I just have a feeling in me water that this is going to be a brilliant challenge :)
So let’s get straight in and for our very first week, our theme is
Ribbons & Lace
and there are 2 prizes up for grabs ….
… a sweet Magnolia Stamp 'Love is in the Air' and a £10 voucher towards a shopping spree in the Ribbon Girl online store.
… this is what I did.
The image I used is Tilda Catching Stars from the Princes & Princesses 2012 collection.
I coloured her with Distress Inks – I can see an improvement here so I think that I’m starting to get somewhere with them.
The colours I used are -
Skin - Tattered Rose & Vintage Photo
Cheeks - Worn Lipstick & Tea Dye
Hair – Antique Linen & Walnut Stain
Clothes – Dusty Concord, Milled Lavender, Mustard Seed, Wild Honey
Two bows made from 16mm Yellow/White No 106 Berisford Pencil Stripe and 15mm Orchid No 910 Microdot Ribbon and topped with an 18mm Sparkly 2-Hole Button which has been threaded with some natural button twine.
Oh my I am loving these roses :)
They are Ivory Rolled Paper Roses and they are so delicate – I could never make them with such fine paper. I added a pearl and some leafy things made with a Martha Stewart BRANCH Craft Punch M230367 (from Simon Says Stamp).
So that’s my card all done.
Well it is a quiet old weekend here peeps. My lot have gone to the Cotswolds so we are grandchild-less. It’s one of those things that looks fine on paper but the reality is different and we are soooooo missing them. The house is nice and quiet (and tidy) though so I guess we should enjoy it while we can …. as long as it doesn’t happen to often lol!!
Right, enjoy the rest of your Sunday and don't’ forget to nip over and check out the challenge. Also I still have my gorgeous giveaway and it isn't too late to enter – you can read all about it right here.
Take care, stay warm and safe and see you tomorrow (yes I will be back but I can’t say why!!!)
Huggiest of hugs to all xxx
