2nd post - challenge entry! If you missed my earlier post then please scroll down

Hi folks,

Just a quickie as I'm off out to get roofing felt!!! I know, I know - I don't know how I can stand the excitement ...... but there!

Two challenges each Saturday so two challenge cards.

Here is my take on the Simply Less Is More challenge of ribbon/s or button/s


Materials used:
  • 12cm square card
  • Lime ribbon
  • Lavinia image inked in memento tuxedo black
  • Hero Arts sentiment inked in memento tuxedo black
  • Lime button threaded with white satin ribbon and knotted

And my card for today's SKETCHIE over on Craft Mad and Loving It which has the added theme of BALLOONS

Materials used:
  • 12.5cm square white scallop card
  • Costco double sided paper (pink one side and blue flowers the other)
  • Sugared white brads
  • Papermania glitter water droplets
  • Go Kreate fancy shaped die
  • Lavinia dandelion imaged inked multiple times (in studio g pink) and then die cut in to a circle
  • Costco double sided paper die cut in to slightly larger circle
  • Nitwits bear image inked in memento tuxedo black on to white card, colored using marvy alcohol inks and cut out
  • Unknown foam balloon stamp inked in memento tuxedo black and colored using the same colors of marvy alcohol pens and the "strings" drawn using Copic Atyou Spica glitter pen in black
  • Foam pads behind the balloons to give them dimension
  • Narrow white satin ribbon colored using the blue marvy alcohol ink to match
  • White gel pen on the balloons to give them a highlight
  • Glossy accents on the balloons to give them shine

Hope you like them both and are enjoying your Saturday
