Ribbon Roses



When my buddy Dawn came back from Regionals, one of the first things she told me about were these "ribbon roses" that she, Christine, and Laura saw demo'd while they were there. You're right, Dawn, super cool! Christine put together a GREAT tutorial on her blog on how to make these. Seriously, if I can do it, YOU can because I'm not very savvy when it comes to tricky things with ribbon. Oh, and here's a second tutorial.

The black butterfly, ribbon rose, and a second Sarah Kay image are up on dimensionals. The images are heat embossed with clear embosing powder, which is something I see Tosh and Michelle do a lot...and they're right, it does add a nice finished touch. It also helps keep the ink inside the lines when watercoloring. The layout is Jen's SFYTT Sketch from last Saturday. Here's a close-up:



Here's the inside of the card where I used more of the Madeline DP and a new set from JustRite:

SWEET!!! That image just makes me giggle...hehe! I'm glad you liked the ribbon rose...ONE day I'll do one..haha!
I love to emboss when I watercolour too...since I'm a little messy and go outside the lines, it's sort of a must for me! KWIM?
