Belli #14 - Ribbon



This week's Belli Challenge is to use ribbon, but you can't have any knots or bows on your ribbon. Time to get creative and think of something different.

I tried stamping the wood background with white craft ink onto the Chocolate Chip ribbon, but it dried so pale, you couldn't even see it. So I trashed that and left the Chocolate ribbon plain. I stamped the Olive ribbon with Versafine Vintage Sepia and that seems to look pretty good.

I wanted a simple image so as not to take the focus away from the stamped ribbon, so I just did a simple burned edges around the apple tree image.

Now it's your turn to create something with ribbon, no knots and no bows. If you upload to SCS, please use keyword CBC14. Post a comment on Chrissy's blog posting so we can see your artwork.

Stamps: Wood Grain backgrounder, Apple Tree (both from Cornish Heritage Farms)
Ink: Versafine Vintage Sepia, Walnut Stain distress ink
CS: Kraft
Other: Chocolate Chip wide grosgrain ribbon, Olive wide grosgrain ribbon, sponge, distress tool
