So I survived my first day back at work and now of course it feels like I have never been away! I have a couple of weeks that are clearly going to be the lull before the storm and then I don’t think my feet will touch the ground until the summer! I will be even more glad to escape to the tranquil world of crafting.
The new challenge, #86, over at Really Reasonable Ribbon is to use pink and ribbon. I decided to make a card:I’ve used some coconut white card as this is a less harsh white however, in the photographs it looks more cream. I’ve used a script stamp and Worn Lipstick distress ink to stamp the background then, using an Inkduster, added swooshes of ink all over, building up more colour at edges and then finally using the ink pad to apply ink directly to the edge.
I’ve stamped the heart image, which is one of a set by Hero Arts, in Worn Lipstick and mounted this on to more coconut white.
The love sentiment is one of the Darkroom Door “String Inspiration” stamps – stamped in Worn Lipstick and then dusted with more ink.
I’ve then added strips of ribbon from my stash – pink organza rose trim, pink candystripe ribbon and some pink heart trim.
I think I’ve more than fulfilled the pink/ribbon part of the challenge!!
Thanks for buzzing by.
