Flower and Ribbon


I took inspiration from the hot pink flower in the Paper Players photo and thought it would work nicely with the Freshly Made sketch.  Instead of adding leaves to the flowers I used green ribbon behind it.  The flower is an old one from Hero Arts that I coloured with Copics.  The ribbon is also Hero Arts.   A friend was looking at photos of my craft room recently and asked how I use ribbon on my cards.  I said, "I don't!" which got me thinking that I really should try to use some or pass it on to someone who will.  I made two cards using ribbon today and I'm pretty darn pleased with this first one!  (I'll share the other one tomorrow).

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Papertrey Ink
Stamps:  (Flower) Hero Arts, (Sentiment from Bigger Blooms) Papertrey Ink
Inks:  (VersaFine Onyx Black, Memento Tuxedo Black) Tsukineko
Markers:  (RV29, R59, YR16, Y17) Copic
Ribbon:  Hero Arts
Other:  (Nuvo English Mustard Crystal Drops) Tonic

It's an oldie but goody Hero Arts bloom, Jen! You've colored her up really snazzy - well she had to be snazzy to stand out on those bedazzling ribbons!!
So pretty!! xx
