I'm always popping in to the Poppicraft blog and to the shop site just to see what new ideas & goodies Michelle has. I've placed only one order so far but the customer service and delivery is excellent, the only trouble is the products are so yummy you have to be quick off the mark to get the new products especially the ribbon kits.
While browsing I noticed that the challenge was to create a card with an unusual use for ribbon and the prize is 50 yards of ribbon !! . . . not for me I thought. I'm fine following a sketch etc but something this creative was best left to the design teams LOL!!
So I felt disappointed and sorry for Michelle when I checked in today to find that only one person had entered to win this great prize . . . get your act together I thought . . . so I did LOL! and here's the result.
I've made the skirt from ribbon (the unusual use of ribbon part).
I've coloured the image using whispers & sakura pens & for the cake I've used pink 3D paint & stickles.
I've then decoupaged the top to cover where I've threaded the ribbon through (made holes with my eyelet tool)
I'm really pleased with the finished card & decided these challenges are good to get the creative juices flowing.
