This card is for the Just Magnolia Week 20 Challenge - Ribbon and Bows. I bought this wire ribbon in the $1 bin at Michael's. The picture doesn't show it well, but it's a gorgeous blue with silver glitter...one of those "eye catching" ribbons...where you see beautiful winter cards, gorgeous Spring creations, etc etc etc! ....thought I'd hit the ribbon jackpot!
NOT....do not buy this ribbon! the glitter comes off the minute you touch it (well, slight exaggeration)...imagine tying a bow with it! I was covered in glitter...look closely and you can see it missing on the bow!
But what was I going to do...I based my whole card around it! hence, the bow tie instead of the glorious creation I had imagined....card over! but its going in that challenge!!! LOL
The rest of the card was fun! I actually tackled the Copic air brush! The nesties background is done with the air brush and Copic B12!....not too bad! The background paper is a scrap blue.... there is glitter gold pen in the flowers that Tilda is holding but it doesn't show well....
all because of that stupid bow!
oh well, we dont always love them all do we???? isn't it sometimes just the "call of the challenge"... LOL
