The SUO Challenge this week is all about ribbons and bows! In moving my craft room's location recently, I found myself going through my stash of embellishments, and uncovered a lot of reasons to be playing with ribbons and bows.
I found this wooden frame at a thrift store and decorated it with some flowers and other embellishments. It already had a lovely crackle finish, so I only added to and updated the center portion with a whole host of different materials.
Stamps: Lovely Little Labels, You're a Gem
Ink: Cherry Cobler, Soft Suede
Paper: White Naturals and Ivory Naturals cardstock, corrugated cardboard
Tools: Fun Flowers die, glue gun, mini scallop punch
Extras: mini library clips, vintage trinkets, ribbon sliders, antique brads, other retired hardware, twill tape and natural trim ribbon, corduroy buttons, linen thread, antique tags
I covered the background with an off-white burlap material, and layered the flowers on top.
This is a project that had been in the back of my mind for awhile but I could never seem to commit to certain colors. I stumbled upon this frame in the second hand store, and found a fun way to re-purpose it with my stash of embellishments.
Oh those Fun Flowers are addictive to play with! So many possible combinations!
