Paper Makeup Stamps Monday Challenge


This weeks challenge from Paper Makeup Stamps was to incorporate ribbon into your design somewhere - figured I could manage THAT - even managed to use 2 pieces of ribbon - Chocolate Chip grosgrain and Bashful Blue Taffeta. Her wings are glittered up with Dazzling Diamonds - and so I must add is most of my house - have been having a marvellous time with it this week - LOL.

The big struggle I had was tryng to work out the colour scheme and layout - I had already coloured up this image of Kirsten - and had her cut out using my nesties, she was just waiting to be put to use. This worked out well as I was able to quickly put my card together - not sure I would have had time to "play" otherwise with my Open House/Stamp Club this weekend, and Convention swaps to put together!

Everything is from SU apart from the image and the rhinestones.

OK - no more procrastinating - back to those swaps......

Great job of coloring again Debbie and I like the DP you chose to show off this image! I had to click on a close up view to spot the second ribbon you used:)) Thought I was losing my mind or perhaps you were when I didn't see it the first time I looked..ha! Perhaps it's just time I wander off to bed now:))))

Love that card!!

If you ever want su! "rhinestones" pull apart a rhinestone brad and use a mini glue dot to stick it on, i've done it in the past and it works wonders!

Lovely card Debbie - I like the combination of the Choc. Chip and the blue - works really well together.
I have been trying out my 'Nesties' too lately - so much fun aren't they ?

These fairy stamps are just beautiful - great job with this one!
