I also have news of blog candy that I will be offering every week in the month of August--more about that below!
First, my design:
This week, the Shabby Tea Room challenges us to use ONE ribbon, TWO buttons, and THREE punches or dies...hence, 123!
I began my design with Stampin' Up's beautiful floral image from "Elements of Style." I colored the image with muted Copic Sketch markers, then die cut it with a Spellbinder Petite Oval die. I layered the oval image onto a Spellbinder Petite Oval Scalloped die using dimensional tape.
Take a look at my two buttons (Foof a La Rhonna Christmas Collection)...they're threaded together to create one!
I am just in love with Basic Grey's "Cappella" decorator paper (Stamp Simply Ribbon Store)! The soothing, understated prints match this May Art's Wide Silk Ribbon (Stamp Simply Ribbon Store--NEW ribbon just in!) just perfectly!
If you look closely at my layered base, you will see one more punched detail using Stampin' Up's Scalloped Border punch.
The Shabby Tea Room Challenges are so enjoyable! They come out with a new challenge every Monday, which you may participate in through Sunday night. They feature a prize for one fortunate person is also announced on Monday as well! Check it out!
