Good morning folks, it's Monday again and it's chucking down the rain outside yet again so I hope none of you have been flooded out. Not something we get here very often fortunately as the nearest rivers are 5 miles either side of us.
Today sees the last of the Autumn supplies challenges over at Make My Monday and this week the supplies in question are Buttons and Ribbon.
I decided on very warm and glowing colours for my card as I think we all need a bit of cheering up in the wet and dreary weather so I hope this does the trick!
I made the background paper using Scattered Straw, Mustard Seed and Wild Honey Distress inks with my Vintage Inking Technique (you can find the link to this by clicking on my new Tutorial page at the top of my blog). I then added faux stitching using a brown fine pen and the Tim Holtz Idea-ology ruler.
I added the panel to a tent fold card blank I made (necessary as the card is embellishment heavy) and added a central border of scrap decorated paper from my bits box, trimmed with a Martha Stewart punch. I also added a small strip of painted corrugated card and some lovely Autumn coloured ribbon lurking in my ribbon jar.
I then added a further scrap of stamped paper from my bits box to a recycled clothing tag (thick kraft chipboard so I just had to save this!), trimming the paper edges with pinking scissors. I made a rather bold floral embellishment using a piece of velvet ribbon in a gorgeous russet shade, running a line of stitches down one long edge and gathering it up to form a circle. I topped this with a flower from my bits box and and a lovely flower button with the shank chopped off.
I assembled the card with a panel of painted corrugated card, trimmed at the top with the pinking scissors and finished off with a couple of the leaves left over from an earlier project and a die cut sentiment stamped with a Hobby Craft clear stamp on kraft card.
Have a great week.
Hugs, Fliss xx
