Tammy's Scrapin Corner Challenge #15 Ribbon or Bows


Happy Monday!  It's that time of the week for another challenge over at Tammy's Scrapin Corner.  This week's theme is Ribbon or Bows and we are once again sponsored by Bugaboo's Stamps.  I chose to work with the Silhouette - Hummingbird image this week.  I tried a new technique on this image that allows me to blend colors without using a marker.  I also created a three tiered card by making 3 easle cards in one!  This creation is full of new stuff as you will see.

Here's my creation...

Card Opened

Card Closed

Well, I started out using some yummy purple (and olive) cardstock from SU.  I cut them out using the Spellbinder's Mega Nestibilities Label #8.  I layered dp from Jodie Lee designs Nature Garden Collection.  I added ribbon from SU and added flowers from Wild Orchid Flowers.  The leaves are from Crealies Creative  dies and the flourish behind the image is from Spellbinders. 

The image...
The Bugaboo Silhouette image comes in black; however, using MS Word I changed the colors and blended in other colors.  I used a Copic E41 to color around the trim of the image.  I finished the card off with eyelets. 

The layout of the card...
Basically I created this card by using the basic techniques of an easel card.  I will put a tut together on how I actually made it later.

Well, I hope that you will join us for the challenge this week.  Also, below you will find a posting for some yummy blogcandy from me that expires June 30th, so you don't want to miss out!
