The Pink Elephant Challenge 4 - Recipe from Ellas Kitchen

This weeks challenge was a recipe to include die cuts and ribbon. I totally borrowed this idea from a stand at the craft fair at the SECC although she did it in black and white. All you do is cut a circle to match the ink (I die cut one on my Cricut) stamp part of the image (Penny Black Flying Stars stamp I bought yesterday) in Versamark then embossed in white. I stamped the main image in Brilliance Pearlescent Lavender on to a scallop card from Craftwork cards. Then embossed with clear embossing powder. You line up the die cut circle's image over the main image for a snapshot. People have probably been doing this for years but I thought it was a rather novel idea and had never seen it before. The sentiment is another Penny black stamped and embossed to match. I punched 2 hole and then thread and tied my ribbon. Added a few adhesive gemstones to fill in a blank space that need something.

Am away to try some more of these in different colours/stamps etc.

have a great day
