Stamp-a-faire 2012: Ribbon Technique Challenge
The ribbon technique I chose was to make ribbon flowers by "melting" the ribbon a little over a candle flame. I used scarlet jewel bitty dot ribbon for 2 of my flowers and enchanted evening dotted satin ribbon for the other. Some of them got a little scorched (and melted) before I finally figured the technique out, but I still adore them. I added self adhesive half back pearls in the centers to jazz it up a little.
For the card I used a Fine Linen card base and Fine Linen patterned paper . I die cut Mat Stack 5 from Early Espresso and Naturals White. I stamped BB:Text Style in River Rock on the white layer then stamped Turning A New Leaf in Pear Pizzazz.
I then die cut the straight Holiday Photo Finisher from Fine Linen and stamped the sentiment from Giga Guidelines in Early Espresso.
Thanks for stopping!
