The guys at Fantastic Ribbons, Keith and Ben, were awfully generous sending myself and the DT a bundle of delectable ribbons to work with - including this sheeny, shiny wired number below. The beauty of wired ribbon is that it holds its form to create the most bubbly, full bows. You can be really adventurous with shaping ruffles too.
Here is a simple card where the bow dominates the entire card but is still subtle enough to blend with the papers too.
I used bling from Mei Flowers, My big shot by Sizzix, greetings from Craftwork Cards and paper from Basic Grey. Finally, adhesives from Tonic - yes, TONIC!
I can't believe that I've started using glue from Tonic Studios.
That's cos I am really picky with my PVA. I mean that, it just has to deliver in the right size blobbage and speed. So when I tried this out at the NEC last week, I gave it a massive thumbs up and decided from now that it would be my adhesive of choice. They agreed to let me take some away for my personal use and I reckon this little lot of loveliness will last me a few months.
Finally, here is a picture that I taught Mell to take this weekend. Slow shutter speeds and sparklers equals a lot of fun. I wrote my name (you can make out it says Kirsty.....just!). I did this the right way for me but back-to-front for the camera. All I did was flip the photo in photoshop to read the right way.
Didnt she/I do a fab job? lol xx
