Just what I love... Flowers!
I think the ribbon drove this card design. The first thing I did for yesterday's Color Challenge at Splitcoaststampers was to dye some white seam binding with Melon Mambo with a touch of Pumpkin Pie ink. I've done this a few different ways . This time I "smooshed" the inkpads onto my largest acrylic block(#118483), spritzed it with some water (#126185) picked up all the wet ink with a strip of seam binding. Rubber gloves come in handy too. If the ribbon is really wet I dab it off with a tissue and then hang it to dry. The wrinkles end up being part of the charm. I suppose if the ribbon got wet the color would run - but if my card gets wet that's probably the end of the card too!
The challenge also included Pretty in Pink plus a choice of green. Definitely flower colors!
I "sloppy stamped" the images from What I Love, (#141276) in Melon Mambo, Pumpkin Pie and Wild Wasabi. The lighter shades of Melon Mambo are a lot like Pretty in Pink so I didn't bother going to get my Pretty in Pink pad. I trimmed my stamping down to my favorite part, tied the dried ribbon around it and mounted it to the top of my card with Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430) and added one of the sweet little messages from the same stamp set. I think this layout makes those little messages work really well.
