Bling Weaving!



Calling this one "Bling Weaving" because of the sparkle-ly ribbon.  Hard to get "sparkle"  to show well in a picture, but the ribbon is brown with blue lines and copper with blue lines - woven together! The picture is so dark - I can't seem to take a good photograph of a card with sparkle :(This week's Pot Luck Challenge at Stamp TV was to weave!! haven't done that in a loooooong time! but it was fun :) I switched the direction of the colors in the center of the card and added mini-mini adhesive pearls that are copper colored.

Using the Inspiration Mosaic Stamp, I embossed it with Copper, then stamped in copper the dotted lines from the same stamp set.  Thought it was neat how the dotted lines matched the dotted lines in the ribbon.
The sentiment and top insert are raised on dimension dots

Stamps:  GinaK's - Inspiration Mosaic by Melanie, Thanks a Million and Autumn Stamp Set
Paper: Gina K's Chocolate Kiss, SU's Ballet Blue, Copper and white
Ink: Memento Black, Brilliance Copper, SU's Ballet Blue
Embellishments: mini-mini pearls, stash ribbon (I think from Michael's)
Technique: embossing, matting, weaving

If I get some time for my blog tomorrow, will try to get a better picture!
Thanks for stopping by,

PS just realized that if you pop over to Stamp TV - the picture there is much much better!!! (I'm at work - gotta go !!)
