Nothing But Paper Challenge
So for my nothing but paper, I've made faux pleated ribbon, faux ribbon and bow, faux brads and of course my usual faux flowers!
All the details are on the Magnolia-licious Highlites Challenge blog HERE. And of course, if you want to join us in the challenge, that really nice Diana has offered another terrific prize!!!
Magnolia-licious has such a spectacular selection for you to chose from. I've used the following Magnolia products:
MINI #3032 WATERCAN TILDA
#15 POINSETTIA DOOHICKEY DIES
#22 VINTAGE FLOWERS AND LEAVES DOOHICKEY DIES
#24 DREAM TAG DOOHICKEY DIES
#27 MAGNOLIA TREE--BUTTERFLIES DOOHICKEY DIES
Water colored Little Tilda with Distress Inks and did add a white gel pen for accents. Used a 1/4" and 3/8" circle punch for the faux brads. The pleated ribbon was made with my handy dandy Scor-Pal scoring at 3/4", then 1/4", then 1/2", then 1/4" again and repeat those same scores across the strip of paper that is 3/4" wide. The printed paper is K and Company. Used a Stampin' Up punch for the oval cut out.
#22 VINTAGE FLOWERS AND LEAVES DOOHICKEY DIES. I've shaded them with a little yellow/gold chalk, twisted the petals and added a 1/8 circle of yellow/gold paper for the centers. The bow was made from the background paper and I cut it out similar to an old Deja Views stencil.
Hope you'll join the challenge and thanks for checkin' in!!!
Enjoy every day!
