Tie a Holiday Ribbon On!!

Not as late as normal getting a card done for the Jingle Belles Challenge, When I bring my "things" to the cottage they are always in a jumble, at some point I will try to organize to find things easier, After I finished the card I found the original die I had planned using. Ah still one day left.

First a litttle Tutorial

This is alcohol ink smooshing and how I do it is...cut 2 pieces of shiny cardstock to the size you want, take a large ziplock bag put one piece of cardstock inside, center it and zip it shut. Take what ever colours of alcohol markers you want to use and scribble all over the plastic using the piece inside the zip lock back as a guide when you are satisfied then spritz it with rubbing alcohol and put the shiny side down on the "mess" and lift it up see if it is how you want it, it drys quickly. I think this a fun technique. On to my card.

When I found the background piece knew I wanted to back some ornaments with it. Thank heavens I brought a "stick it" sheet, bought them a year ago at scrapfest and they are working great for sticking intricate dies with no glued fingers. When leaving on Friday for the cottage I threw a few rolls of ribbon in my tote, I used the sheer white 1/4 inch ribbon to hang the baubles and made some tiny bows, the background  was embossed with swiss dots and layered it on a scrap of purple.

Close up of the ornament.

Finished the inside with a couple of scraps of paper and a sentiment from Impression Obsession.

I am entering this in:

Thanks for stopping by today and have a wonderful week.

What a cool technique, Barb! I must try that with my alcohol inks. I love the look you achieved, so soft and pretty! Your Christmas bauble card is gorgeous, and now you're another card closer to your goal! Yikes I haven't make any yet this month but I am working on one for Rudolph Day; can't miss that!
