Buttons and Bows - New challenge at Crafts and Me

Hey peeps!

It`s that time again, yeay!!! New challenge at Crafts and Me and it is our new team member Jane that has set the challenge. The theme is ribbons and bows.

For my card today i have let myself be inspired by the gorgeous sketch from Crafting Life`s Pieces. The image i have used is the brand new Analinda designed by Hannah Lynn. You can find it right here in the Crafts and Me store.

I have ruffled all the edges and painted the papers with white gesso thinned with water.

Our fabulous sponsor this week is Crafty Ribbons. Isn`t that a yummy lot up for grabs this week. I really would have loved to get my hands on these gorgeous ribbons, lol.

The colours i have used for the image are:

Vanilla, Saffron, Oatmeal, Tan

Cocoa, Cinnamon, Tan, Putty, Satin

Denim blue, Pastel blue, Also used Diamond stickles.

Other colours used:
Lipstick red, Khaki, Sandstone, Umber, Powder blue
Stone: Ice grey #1,2,3,4 and 5.

The ribbon is from Wild Orchid Crafts and the gorgeous vintage button is from Cartwright Sequins which have the most amazing stock of vintage buttons.
