...on ribbon and stitching. Well this card I did for a couple of challenges but fancied doing something a little different to stamping for a change, hope its still ok for the challenges though. The first challenge is the colour challenge at Playdate cafe who want you to use medium pink, pale pink and yellow. Well my ribbons I used are definitely medium pink and 2 pale pinks in different shades and the button and card have yellow hues though neither are bright yellow, hope it's still ok for my challenge entry to count.
Totally gorjuss have a challenge to use ribbon, I did think about entering the last card I posted for their challenge but thought its easy to put ribbon and a bow across a card so wanted to make my entry for the challenge a little different, sorry there is no gorjuss girl, or other stamped image I'll have to try sewing these roses on paper next time, but hope my entry still counts. Maybe I ought to change the post title to 'hope it still counts'.
My third challenge I've just seen I can enter if the challenge rules are a little loose is over at KL SNS who want stitching and flowers. I was so amazed at how easy these flowers are to sew. First you sew a 5 pointed spoke wheel can't think how to describe it really ,apart from 5 spokes coming out of a central point, this you do in cotton. Then bring the ribbon up near the centre and simply weave alternate over and under the spokes till you get to the outside then go back through to the back. The ribbon naturally twists and forms the petals, I love these as they are so effective. The question I have to ask is does my entry count, there stitching and flowers but not probably in the way you hoped.
Thanks for 3 fab challenges without the colours I don't think I would have ventured down this path so thanks Playdate cafe.
