Good morning my lovelies, Monday morning again and we've got a new challenge startiing at Vintage Stamping Challenges, this month our theme is 'Wings and Things' and as always there's a fab prize from our generous sponsor Flonzcraft. You don't have to make a vintage project to enter although we are a stamping challenge so no digis allowed.
I bought a fab kit to make a ribbon flower at Summer Craftiing and although it was a bit of a scary prospect for someone who is rubbish at sewing, it was actually pretty easy to make. You can see them here at the Ribbon Box. I popped a brooch back on the flower and decided to make a tag to display it. I've used some of my favourite stamps from Flonzcraft, the set is called 'Flower Kingdom' and its a real bargain at only $5.99! I 've coloured the images with Graph'it markers and added a cloudy sky with PanPastels. :
I've added lace, ribbon and a gorgeous flowery button tied with some bakers twine from my stash. The butterfly charm is from The Ribbon Girl and to finish off I've added some pearly swirls around the edges of the tag. Here's another pic of the ribbon flower.
I'm entering this in the following challenges:
ABC: S is for stitching
A Little bit crafty: summer sun
A gem of a challenge: anything pearlescent
Crafts and Me: anything goes
Crafts Too: summer days and fun in the sun
