Here is my answer to the Ways to Use It challenge on SCS Thursday. Julia chose Ribbon Revisited as the theme for this weeks challenge. Now I am a ribbon fanatic. Love it, love it, love it. So I had to play. I wanted to do something a little different and I remembered the little ribbon flowers that I had made and used earlier on my blog. My Bee trio had been sitting idle for a while so I wanted to use it. I keep thinking about bees and flowers and then I thought that the ribbon flowers were so light and airy which somehow turned into bees in tutus. I need a card for a little girl's birthday so this worked perfect for me. The bees are stamped with Palette's Black Noir then colored in with Stampin' Write markers. The wings are outlined with a Sakura clear Stardust pen and the whole image is punched out with my oval scalloped punch. The PP (DCWV's Pocket Full of Posies- thanks, Dianne) was attached to the Almost Amethyst panel and both were run through my Cuttlebug. Afterwards, I painted the swirls on the AA side with Frosted Lace stickles- the PP side comes with sparkle already on the page. For the tutus I simply sewed the top portion of the ribbon right below the selvage (is that the right word) then drew the string to bunch of the ribbon. This card is truly much cuter in person. Between my below par camera and my not so sharp camera skills, I couldn't do these little gals justice. Wishing everyone a happy, safe weekend. Take care!
