Spoon Full of Sugar - Ribbons and Bows

Spoon Full of Sugar - Ribbons and Bows

Hi - Tuesday and Spoon Full of Sugar Day. I am not sure about this card - I look at it once and like it and the next minute I am not to sure.... I think it is probably because I did not do any coloring. (Insert shock face here!!!) Nope no coloring of any kind. So... let me know what do you think?
Again - different for me, but I think I like it. LOL Think I do. I use the new Tim Holtz Glassine paper. This waxy paper is just so cool. And I love the look of it. I read where you can stamp on it and then quickly heat set it on the wax to set it into the paper. Sounded cool - so I tried it. I stamped the new Stampavie Penny Johnson's Garden Shelf image on the paper with Papertrey Ink Vanilla ink . Then for just a few seconds I heat set it and the wax got shiny - and the ink sort of melted into the paper. Then it dried and it is like the wax is over the ink! Really cool! I was so happy with how it came out my trial piece needed a card. Now if holding the image off by itself it does look like a cream color stamp. But when I put it on the gorgeous GCD papers with the blue and brown colors it took a blue tint to it.

Then I sewed all they layers together, and for some reason it felt like it needed LOTS of pearls. So I added them... LOL

Now I didn't forget that this was the Spoon Full of Sugar Challege - to add at least one ribbon and one bow. So I found a satin brown ribbon, and ran it across as a band, then tied a simple bow for one side. I think brown satin ribbon - is just my total favorite, looks so pretty!

Make sure to pop over to Spoon Full of Sugar and join us for some Ribbons and Bows ok?  Me... today I am working on a few DT projects. Been on this wild kick of trying new things lately. Whether that is good or not I don't know, but it is fun to try new products and techniques, even if they don't always turn out my best stuff ever. It is all about having fun and playing right?

Have a wonderful Tuesday - HUGS and

It is gorgeous. I was surprised when I read "no colouring" :), but it works beautifully on the glassine paper.

It's so pretty Michelle. I really like it. Love the brown satin ribbon also! Wish I could see it in person. Your photos are great though. I may have to play around and do some of this stamp and iron, like the way it turned out. Thanks for sharing it!
