Penny Black Saturday Challenge # 10 - Ribbons

Well seeing as summer is drawing to an end (boo hoo) I thought I'd make this one quite bright! The theme for this week's Penny Black Saturday Challenge is ribbons, which I love! But for some reason I found it hard to do something out of the ordinary. In the end I tried to make some little flowers by stitching along one edge of the ribbon then gathering the stitching to make the flower. I would have liked to have added more ribbon but didn't want to overdo it?! Maybe I'll make another card, just to try out some more ribbon! Anyway, here's what I did...


I used:

- Penny Black images from "Bubbly" set
- Watercolour pencils (Faber Castell)
- Sentiment stamp from Woodware
- Gingham ribbon I bought by the metre
- Brads from my stash
- Chalks & ink to distress
- Paper from Pink Petticoat, Paper Mill & Tesco
- Cuttlebug "Swiss Dots" embossing folder
