Thank you to everyone that joined in with our last challenge, hope you all had fun. Two weeks are up so it is time for a NEW Challenge on our Ribbon Challenge blog here.
Maja is hosting this NEW Challenge, she has a love of butterflies so has named her challenge...
Things with Wings
.........and would like us to use butterflies, maybe a fairy or two, angels.......I think you get the idea. I have been playing around with some NEW Satin Ribbon and this idea just flew into my mind!
Just two lengths of ribbons that I have folded and sewed to make two little bow ties, then joined them together with a stitch.
Here is a close up so you can see the details. The body is made from beads and wire - I wanted to do a tutorial for you, but my thumb complained about making these two butterflies. So I did what I have been told to do by the Docs to get my thumb better and STOPPED. It is responding to the new treatment, although I do look a bit like a parcel wrapped up with black tape!
The design girls have come up with some super inspiration again (thanks girls) why not pop over and have a peak HERE
, while you are looking around why not join in with us on this new challenge.
This NEW Satin Ribbon is the ribbon I used to make the roses for the Wedding cake on our DVD. I must admit this wedding cake did look fab. I say that in the past tense as the cake has been eaten. We gave the bottom tier to Janets craft club to have a slice with their cuppas, the top tier we all had with our morning coffee and the middle tier ummmmmmm a certain person begining with a T has been enjoying it! NOBODY was allowed to touch the cake until we had comfirmation from the videoing team that all was well.
The Satin Ribbon can be found here
, the Rose tutorial is here
and the DVD is here
. Hope you enjoy them as much as we did the cake!
Challenge goodie time, todays selection of creations are from Sharon.
I do like the simplicity of this card Sharon, perfect colour match with the papers and ribbons.
"Mum to be" how fab is that, I love the softness the sheer ribbon gives this card Sharon.
You do work with some fun images Sharon, fantastic.
Adorable Sharon, such a wicked combo of colours, image and ribbons.
This is such a super idea Sharon. Two flannels that have been sewn together to make a taggie.
Fantastic work Sharon thank you so much for all your wonderful creations.
That's me done for another day, meet you all back here tomorrow for the Friday FREEBIE!
