La-La’s Weekly Wednesday Challenge #10

Yay! It's time for another La-La's Weekly Wednesday Challenge! Wow - can you believe this is already our tenth challenge? Time sure flies when you're having FUN!

This week our challenge was set by the talented Lisa and here's what she said: "My challenge is to use ribbon as your main embellishment. It doesn't have to be the only one, but let's show off our best ribbon design work!"

Ribbon is one of my fave 'bellies, so I was thrilled to see this challenge! Here's what I came up with:

I used the new Christmas Rosie with Bird stamp and this sketch from Stamp with Fun:

I don't normally use such complicated sketches, but I figure every once in a while I need to step outside of my comfort zone! And I'm glad I did because it was fun to be able to use all these different patterns (all from Basic Grey's Figgy Pudding line which were in my last DT package from Irina!)

Rosie was stamped and watercolored, then I sponged ink all around the edges, all with Distress Inks. I then flocked all the trim on Rosie's outfit and the chick's hat and boots! Here's a close shot:

I added a lot of layers (all sponged with the same ink and machine sewn), and a sentiment flag. I punched 2 snowflakes out of glitter cardstock and poked a brad through each one that was tied with a bit of ribbon. Two of the layers were wrapped with the same ribbon, and then the snowflakes attached over the ribbons.

Other challenges:
  • Daring Cardmakers - Favourite Things: use 5 of your favorite things (papers, embellishments, tools, styles, etc.). Mine are patterned paper, sewing, ribbon, Nestabilities, and coloring!
  • Creative Card Crew - snowflakes
We hope you'll play along with us this week - all the details can be found on the La-La Land Crafts Blog. And don't forget to check out all the amazing creations from the DT and Guest DT! TFL!
