Really Reasonable Ribbon

is the Sponsor for Team B's Tuesday Throwdown Challenge this week.

 They have a lovely selection of ribbon including all colors of seam 
binding so stop over and visit them HERE.  

Our theme this week is Vintage/Shabby Chic. My project is a little wall hanging. 
I started with a piece of light weight card board cut out with a Spellbinder 
stitching two layers together to make it good and stiff. I  used some
textured packing paper, a piece of corregated cardboad box stitched on
for the base. I had an old rose print I tore and added. Using texturing
compound I stenciled on the random dots them used inks to color 
them. Some old lace trim was added in a few random
spots. The flourish is a Cherry Lynn die cut into pieces.
I stained and dyed the buckram that is tucked around
the flowers. All the flowers are vellum. The two
at the top are cut with a Spellbinder rolled rose.

 The leaves are all from a Spellbinder die also.
Im not sure what the butterfly die is.
 A piece of pink was cut and embossed with
a dotted swiss and tucked in.The
sentiment is an old stamp I have dont know the maker.
I stamped it onto the piece cut with a Spellbinder then
faux stitched and edges inked.

The rose on the bottom is cut with a Spellbinder Rose Creation;
the foliage is also Spellbinder and I added a little rose
bud to it. I actually think I will replace the
rose. It was pale with the edges slightly darkened
but it looked a little to peach compared to the ribbon
so I tried to add some pink in and its too bright 
and blobby looking now after I see it in
the photos.

WOW, Davi! Stunning. I love the crinkly ribbon. Wonderful spring colors and that rose is wonderful. Sorry, I don't agree about it being too bright, at least not the way it looks in the photo. Great sentiment.
