Um Wow, Avery Elle & May Arts Ribbon

Welcome to day #1 of the 
MAY ARTS, AVERY ELLE AND UM WOW STUDIO BLOG HOP
We hope to load you up with a week's work of fun ideas!
There are three sets of prizes along the way too:
  • 1 Stamp Set
  • 1 roll of ribbon
  • 1 mask, flair set & layered chipboard set
Just be sure to leave a comment as you visit the May Arts Blog and others.

I incorporated bits of ribbon from May Arts, some stamped and cut-out hearts
(and sentiment) from Avery Elle and a few chipboard banners and circles from Um Wow
in creating this really quick card!


7/8" ribbon works perfectly to fill in the openings of the chipboard banner windows.
Add a bead of fabric glue around the edge and then press the ribbon in place.  

For the hearts, I first stamped them onto a textured white cardstock with 
black Staz-On ink.  I used different shades of watercoloring pencils by Faber Castell
and then blended the colors with a water brush.  

I wanted a very hap-hazard and unintentional look, especially with the heart placement.
I added a small foam square to the back of each and then arranged them around the
top of the banner.  The small circle shapes gave the hearts some texture and tied
back in with the banners.

In finishing, I used the same black Staz On ink for the sentiment at the bottom.
Some bright papers by Doodlebug Design to match the ribbon banners and my card is complete!
