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.

Lovely! Some brilliant mixed media work on this pretty card. Your choice of the Red Pepper spray was so pretty with the white lattice embossing over the top. Adding that gorgeous flower and the vellum leaves really amped up the impact of an already beautiful card. This is another look I will be CAS-ing! Really loving the results of your play! TFS, Happy wkend & Hugs too.
