Ribbon, Flower and a Button.


Life has been hitting me at full pace recently, so this post is a day or two late for the

The challenge is to use a colour palette or bingo, or if you are feeling super creative, both.


I took the bingo challenge and used the items on the top row.

I started with the panel that had been the result of a 'play' in my studio some days ago when I sprayed a stencil with Adirondack colour wash in Red Pepper, and then with a quick spray of gold shimmer mist, which really does not show in the photos.

This was followed by a layer of modelling paste applied through another stencil.

At the bottom of the stencilling I added some vellum (Spell Binders) die cut leaves, and then a stack of three paper flowers, and a button threaded with ribbon, held with glue dots.

The final detail was the sentiment stamped on a hand made tag, with the corners rounded and the edges sponged with the same ink I stamped with.

The recipients loved it - which always makes me happy.
