Crafty Ribbon DT card........Challenge 92
A new challenge for Crafty Ribbons Blog, this time the theme is Butterflies & ribbons (of course its got to have ribbons on there somewhere!!!)...
I went for a completely different look for me when I used a Tonic die from a set I brought sometime ago & have looked at them completely a few times but this was the first time that I have used one of them (I think). I decided all along that I wanted to leave it white & was going to do a black & white card but then saw the beautiful papers from LOTV (the paper pad was a freebie with a craft magazine recently). The butterflies on the die I coloured with Sakura glitter pens & that was a mistake due to the lines where the ink has settled, The separate butterflies are cut from Spellbinder dies and coloured with promarkers & then topped with Sakura gelly roll glitter pens but it still left lines.... I wont be using the gelly roll pens to cover large areas again after this as Im not happy with the whole effect now.
The ribbons are from Crafty Ribbons (of course) and I have used an ivory 16mm Grosgrain available to buy from here and a buttercup coloured swiss dotty grosgrain 10mm wide is available to buy from here which is what I layered on top.
