Hello all and welcome to the 2nd challenge at The Ribbon Reel Challenge Blog! I am your host this time and have named our challenge 'Strawberries and Cream' and chosen this gorgeous photo as inspiration for us all to work with ...
... isn't is just a DREAM dining room??!!?? My heart skipped a beat when I saw this photo ... so full of soft colors and shabby goodness! The challenge this week is to be inspired by the colors in the photo above and to use FLOWERS and RIBBON/BAKER'S TWINE in your design!
I began by making a delicious bloom with some May Arts Pink Silky Crush ribbon -- run a gathering stitch along one side and then pull up the threads to create soft gathers. Wrap into a bloom and tie off the threads. I added two glittered leaves that I painted with cream paint on the edges to create a soft, time-worn look. The gorgeous striped ribbon is Organic Cotten in Pink ... isn't it simply beautiful??!!??
I made a sweet miniature banner for my sentiment using sticker alphas. I cut strips of 1" polka dotted pattern paper, applied the sticker alphas, cut out each individual letter strip, cut one end with pinking shears and wrapped the other end around some yummy Pink Baker's Twine from The Ribbon Reel Shop! My patterned papers are from the Girls' Paperie collection.
And here is the finished ... oh so girly ... pretty in pink ... delicious confection!!
Be sure to hop on over to The Ribbon Reel Challenge Blog to be inspired by the other teamies' creations this week and then visit the SHOP to pick up some gorgeous trims, laces, ribbons and accessories to create a mini masterpiece of your own!!
