Sunday Stampers - Week 223 - Tie A Yellow Ribbon

It's been a lovely week here & I expect a lot of you will be enjoying Ally Pally today. I love the setting around Ally Pally - it actually feels like going home as I was born just up the road in Finchley.  I love the view across London from here.  I shall be going with a few friends on Sunday so looking forward to that.

The subject chosen by Hels Sheridan this week (check out her fab blog here) is 'Ribbons'.  I began by making a background with distress inks (worn lipstick, milled lavender & antique linen) then stamped one of TH's background stamps (called Mixed Media)  over part of the background with worn lipstick then spritzed with water to blend it.  Next I stamped a Artemio script stamp in Versafine Smokey Gray.  I gathered some gold ribbon along the bottom of the card then mounted onto black card.  The acetate lady is from Crafty Individuals & placed behind a frame cut from my Silhouette.  The beautiful velvet embellishment is Anna Griffin & I've had it for ages because I couldn't bear to use it!! Finally the Creative Expressions hat pins were added.  It's quite 'girly' for me & makes a nice change.

I expect I shall be one of the last to post again this week!  I really am trying to get more organised - maybe next week!  Thanks to those of you who have posted messages to me - much appreciated.  Have a good week everyone. Sx


  1. What a beautiful vintage card - I love your background, just lovely, and the ruched ribbon is yummy!

  2. Hi Sue, your card is stunning, I love everything about it, gorgeous frame and love the flower. Really beautiful. A x

  3. Somehow I missed this last week Sue but have just taken an indulgent few moments to sit and study it (very art gallery like!!) because it deserves the time needed to take in its full glory. Love that background, so vintage and so right for your choice of image and embellishments (I too would be reticent about using the velvet one:) Now off to see your latest creation. Hugs, Buttons x
