We're continuing with our ongoing Saturday feature:
this week featuring SUEDE May Art's Ribbon!
I'm playing along, even though, yes, you've guessed it...suede is still travelling with the rest of my supplies. Someday I will gladly announce the big arrival...LOL...until then I will continue to play along, making substitutions where possible. Thanks so much for your patience!
My design for today is purposefully very neutral. I was aiming for just a hint of color on my Copic colored LaBlanche "Peony" stamped image. I can also picture this image colored in a vibrant fushia color...just like the peonies that bloom in my MIL's yard.
The base of the card is covered with a french text print from 7 Gypsies "Conservatory" paper pad.
The middle layer of designer paper is from Prima's "Botanical" 6 x 6" pad. I just love the muted fleur de lis print with the pale gray ferns and foliage running along the edge. This print inspired the entire card coloration...soft and muted.
My "suede" for today is actually a border of 1/8" narrow black velvet, layered over black May Art's Wrinkled Ribbon. A little "Vintage Trinkets-Lock and Key" charm adds the final touch.
All supplies today, minus the Copic Sketch Markers, are from The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.
