Today’s challenge # 183 at 365…
Imagine this: WRINKLED! “I want you to use the word "wrinkled" to inspire your card.”
So, here is my take on a wrinkle-ish card.
My ‘wrinkle’ is in the ribbon!
This rose and shrinkly wrinkly ribbon is a technique i stumbled upon while carding. Ok, I was waving around with my heat embossing gun and managed to fry some nylon sheer ribbon and I thought, “well THAT’S interesting!” and so I decided to make it work for me. I intentionally ran the embossing gun over the ribbon (anchor both ends – one you can hold but with the other tuck the roll under something, like your knee or a weight) Wave the embossing gun to and fro sideways over your ribbon. How close you hold the gun and how much you wave will influence your wrinkliness.
*note – I used TWO layers of sheer for the ribbons, it was not bold enough with just one.
For the rose I used a needle and thread, wound the ribbon around in a loose blossom shape, then gave a little blast with the embossing tool. Add a gem and its gorgeous. I cut two tiny leaves out of a green sheer and blasted that for good measure too. It gave the leaves some dimension.
For the card itself, I cut the ‘O’s’ ribbon out using my silhouette SD. The tiny “with love” stamp is a Fiskars.
