Today I am showcasing a fun card that can use those scraps of ribbon that you just can't seem to toss because "what if I need them for another project?"
I really loved this stamp set! It comes with four darling, vintage animals with print in the background! Can you guess what paper pack I used?! If you said to yourself, "I bet that's the Dotty For You paper she keeps on going on about", you would be absolutely right!!! I distressed all of the edges with Chocolate ink, and scrunched up the green paper so I could distress the wrinkles. I love making things look well worn! I think the strip of burlap adds a lot to the feel of this card. Don't you?
I chose bits of ribbon from my all too big stash that I though would complement the rooster. Banners are all the rage right now, and I see them lined up next to each other, so I figured I'd get the same effect with ribbon. I am pleased with the way it turned out.
I used Barn Red, Sunset, and Sunflower inks to water color the rooster image. I would love to hear what you think!!
Now hop on over to Rachel's Blog for more ideas of using up your stash.
