2RB Ribbon Challenge



Today's challenge on the 2 Red Bananas Blog is to add ribbon to your project. I just got the Bow Easy and Sharon's gorgeous silk ribbon in the mail on Friday....perfect timing for this week's challenge! If you haven't seen Jerri's video tutorial on how to make bows with the Bow Easy, be sure to check it out. It's a GREAT tutorial and you can see how to make single-loop or double-loop bows.

The image I used on my card is Jami's Flourish in Thought. I paper pieced her dress with my Wisteria DP and added some shimmer to her wings with my Spica pen. Both squares are up on foam tape. The card measures 4.75" square.

Paper: SU Perfect Plum, Watercolor Paper, Wisteria DP
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black, Bordering Blue, Blush Blossom, Creamy Caramel
