Hello ~ CYP Challenge # 220

Hi, everyone. It's time for a new challenge at Craft your Passion. The theme this week is Ribbon so we want to see you using some of that on your project. Our awesome sponsor this time is artbymiran and I chose to play with the lovely Shaylee Fairy. I coloured Shaylee with my Prismacolor pencils, inking the sky with Broken China Distress ink. Icicle Stickles was added to the wings with a paint brush. The image was cut along its frame lines, matted in black cardstock, and popped up on foam tape for dimension.

The background papers come from MME's Follow Your Heart – Be Amazing paper pad and were each matted with black cardstock to define the layers and add greater contrast. The yellow layer was given faux stitching with a Micron pen. Once the two were adhered to each other, a length of turquoise grosgrain ribbon was wrapped around the stack and glued to the back.

The Hello greeting was computer generated, cut with a Spellbinders die, and matted in black. It was then popped up on a double layer of foam tape and adhered over the ribbon. Two flat black pearls were placed on the ends. Tiny pale turquoise rhinestones were spaced on both sides of the greeting label. A black tab was cut to tuck in behind the image and then faux stitched with a white paint pen. A second tab was cut smaller and then faux stitched in black before being placed over the black layer.

Shaylee and I both thank you for joining us today. We appreciate your wonderful company. When you get a minute, pop over to the Craft Your Passion Challenges blog to see the wonderful creations by the rest of my talented teamies. We would love to see you join us for our Ribbon Challenge.
