Please do not all laugh at once..... this is my first ever attempt at rubbing stamping. Well I didn't do the stamping, Beryl kindly sent me pre-stamped images, all I had to do was the colouring in. I have been encouraged to try the Sunday Sketch & Stamp Challenge by Beryl and Jan. So this is also my first ever entry into a challenge.... scary!!!
I think Sydney could have done better, not happy with my shading - new pens so I maybe I have to get used to them. You all make it look so easy, with your wonderful creations.
I though the ballet image was perfect as Syd started ballet this week. As always I have used ribbon on my card (not as much as normal). The gorgeous flower ribbon is part of the NEW Summer collection (not on the website yet, but I sooooo wanted to use it!!!), the colours are wicked. I used this ribbon to make the three flowers, (stick double sided tape to the back of the ribbon, then stick onto card, you can then cut the flowers out without the ribbon fraying). The lush velvet ribbon is called "Laitue", I added a small bow at the bottom of the card to balance the design.
Now I am going to try and link this to the SSS blog - another first. Not sure I will be entering many of these challenges.... this one has taken me ages!!!!
If you missed out on our Ribbon Challenge "Spring Time" a few weeks ago, then pop over to Creative Inspirations as we have provided a selection of "Spring Time" ribbons as this weeks prize.
