Welcome to the May Arts and Stampendous Blog Hop!
The Stampendous crew are head over heels for May Arts ribbon and it helps that not only are there so many styles, types and colors, but they have been so generous to send Stampendous goodies for all of us to use on the catalog samples each quarter.
There are Stampendous prize packages up for grabs. THREE US commenters will receive a prize of their choice in any one roll of ribbon from May Arts and a $20 reward card. Tell us what state you live in when you comment. Stampendous Official Rules.
Be sure to stop by the May Arts blog each day, because they are having a prize also! How's that for an amazing week of prizes!
Now for my fun little card!
I wanted to make sure that I had ribbon to match my project, so what better could I do than to pick out the ribbon first! Yep, the ribbon is what inspired this card!
From there I created my own pattern paper with a Creative Palette Rectangles, Stack Art Regal Bird Stamp Set, Pansy Spray and some acrylic paint. I never know exactly what's going to happen when I start making a print, but this one sure came out better than I thought it would.
Once the paint dried I stamped Pansy Spray in black on the monoprint. A series of acrylic paint on the filigree stamp in the Regal Bird set, made soft layers of fun. Then I prepped the surface for embossing with Detail White Embossing Powder and the filigree stamp.
My vase is stamped twice, once for the whole image and a second for the rose bloom. I colored with Copic markers from the Violet, Blue Violet, Blue-Green and Green families. They were trimmed and stacked together with various foam adhesive squares.
The Gorgeous sentiment is stamped on white paper and trimmed to look like a pennant tail and then the ribbon was added around the monoprint before gluing down to the matted card base.
