WOC ~ Ribbons and Bows.......

Good Morning!!
It is time for another fabulous
challenge at Wild Orchid Crafts!!
Today the challenge is to use
ribbons and bows!!  This one
was pretty easy as I have been using
ribbon quite a bit lately!

I have combined some wide white Grosgrain and
some shabby crinkled ribbon to get my bow.

I have used some gorgeous memory Box papers
and a page out of an old book. All the edges
have been coated with some Picket Fence distress
crackle paint.  The magic mesh and bells were from
my stash.  To get my gorgeous poinsetta's from
Wild Orchid Crafts so sparkly I covered
them with glue and added some Martha Stewart
 coarse glitter to them. I was smarter today in the
coloring and did the glitter on the bears hat first
and then coloring with the red. If I do it the other way
the red usually runs. My adorable image was
colored with distress inks and twinkling h20's.

Well I can't wait to see all your creations! I loved looking
at all your pins and pearls creations!!

Thanks so much for stopping by and I
hope you all have a wonderful day!!

(Don't mind my awful blog page!! LOL I
put up a new layout and now I can't get my
old one back!! Now I can't get it to look
right!!! UGH! I know I shouldn't mess with
anything!!!  Hopefully I will have time
to play around and figure something out!! LOL)
