Lily Pad Cards : May Arts presents: Ribbon Challenge
Hi all! Two cards in one day!! The creative juices must be flowing! This time I am back to share my card I made for the Ribbon Challenge over at Lily Pad Cards. This is my first time entering into their monthly challenge, and I was up for the task. Simply - you have to make a card using ribbon. Instead of just wrapping ribbon around a card, and tying a pretty bow, I wanted to do something a little different. I traced my butterfly die cut onto a piece of white card stock, and then cut that out so I would have a frame of sorts. Then I had some very colorful self adhesive ribbon, and wanted to give my butterfly a rainbow effect. After getting my ribbon all down the way I wanted it ( which took longer then what you may think), I took my frame and embossed it with one of my cuttlebug folders. I then took some black soot Distress Ink, and gave my frame a "frame" and brought out some of the embossing. I took a piece of twine and twisted it to give the butterfly more of a dimensional body, added some liquid pearls and stamped my "Thinking of you" sentiment. I wanted my butterfly to be my focal point without using too much color to the rest of the card.
I'm liking these challenges. They are fun, and really caused my brain to stretch its creativity. Wish me luck!!
