Ribbons and Bows at Flonzcraft Vintage Stamping Challenges

Good morning folks, we've got a brand new challenge starting at Flonzcraft Vintage Stamping Challenges and this month our theme is 'Ribbons and Bows' chosen by the lovely Shirley. As always we want to see stamping as the focus of your project but it doesn't have to be vintage. Our lucky winner will receive a fab prize, a $20 voucher from Flonzcraft.


Apologies for such a dark photo, I'll never make a photographer that is for certain lol. I've used an old technique that I'd forgotten about until my lovely CB teamie Miranda created a gorgeous card using her version of this technique (you can see it here). I've used  a sentiment from my stash die cut and embossed with spellbinders and added this cheeky little lady from Flonzcraft, she's called Laughing Baby Girl and you can find her here. I've coloured her with Graph'It markers and fussy cut her, popping her up on foam tape.

To finish off I've added lace, seam binding, a button topped with a twine bow and some little faux pearls to finish off.

I'm entering this in the following challenges:
East Wind: die cuts or punches
Just for Fun: ribbon/lace
Paper Shelter: ribbon
Penny Black and More: anything goes

Thanks so much for visiting today
