Hope you are all well. Quite an easy week at work coming up as I am on a course on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. I just hope I learn something and it is not just a remix of previous courses I have been on lol.
I have done quite a bit of crafting over the weekend. Most of it is DT work that I can't show you at the moment. However, this afternoon I had a little play with ribbons. With Valentines Day around the corner I thought it was time to make a start.
I wanted to create a card with lots of dimension so decided to do a heart wreath. I cut a heart shaped ring out of cardboard and wrapped dark blue satin ribbon around it (although you can't really see that now because of the roses). I then attacked my scrap ribbon box and tied various pieces of ribbon onto the heart shape. For the roses I used some pre bought ones but most of them (the shiny pink, pale blue and burgundy roses) are made using ribbon. I love the effect you get and they are quite life like. Some fabric leaves were also added. I used a peel off for the sentiment and a little gem heart for the centre.
As I love working with ribbon I would like to enter this into the DT call over at Crafty Ribbons. Sorry about the quality of the photo, the colours are so much better in real life. I normally take my photos underneath my lamp with a daylight bulb in it. But my bulb blew a couple of days ago so I have had to order another one. Hope it arrives soon.
