Have a Yummy Birthday! (CYP)
This week at Craft Your Passion, our challenge theme is Ribbons and/or Lace. I was able to work with another fun vintage image from The Sugar Kissed Cottage called Ice Cream Girl. She reminds me of the wonderful illustrations from vintage primary school readers. I just love the look on her sweet face and her adorable little outfit. I coloured her with Prismacolor pencils, cut her out, and then as usual, ran black Pitt pen around the edges so the white edge didn't distract from the image. It also hides any cutting bloops!
The background paper from K & Co.'s Wild Raspberry stack was matted in black to make it pop. The scallop border was cut from MME's Traveller stack using the MFT big scallop die and then edged with festive berries Distress ink. before adhering the borders to the top and bottom of the card, a swing for the l'il missy was hand drawn on kraft cardstock, cut out, and coloured with prismas. Two holes were poked through each end and fine twine was used for the swing supports. The swing was popped up with foam tape, as was Missy. Narrow red ribbon was tied in bows to accent the twine.
To further address the theme, a length of narrow lace was adhered to the bottom edge of the lower scalloped border. Four black buttons threaded with black floss were glued to the two borders. The sentiment was computer generated, cut out with a 1" circle punch, and matted with a Spellbinder-cut scalloped circle. Two short pieces of the satin ribbon were used to continue the ribbon theme and make the sentiment look like a prize ribbon.
Thanks for visiting with Missy and me today. Be sure to check out the projects made by the rest of the DT on the Craft Your Passion Challenges blog. They have done a wonderful job exploring the Ribbons/Lace challenge theme. We'd love to have you play along and look forward to visiting you.
