Ribbon Carousel Challenge 8: Coloring

Hi friends! I hope you are having a great week so far! I'm feeling a little under the weather. I'm not sure what exactly it is, maybe something I ate or this new medicine I'm on but I feel icky. Hope YOU are feeling better than me! :)

This week, I'm hostessing the challenge for the Ribbon Carousel Challenge. I picked using coloring mediums as the challenge. Ok, MISTAKE!!! I think I'm the only designed in this group that hasn't taken any Copic classes. So, just bear with me and my self taught coloring!

Here's my card for this week. I combined it with the Stamping Bella sketch challenge for this week. I wish I had adjusted the proportions of the sketch just a little so that there isn't so much open space on the bottom but what can you do? For this card I used some red seam binding to create the stripes behind the image panel and I used some white seam binding that I sprayed with a little glimmer mist for the bow. The image is Stamping Bella and the paper is Cosmo Cricket. And I promise I don't always make mermaid cards and use this paper. ;)

Be sure to hop on over to the Ribbon Carousel Challenge blog to see all the awesome DT samples and to link up your creation! All you have to do is use your favorite coloring medium and some sort of ribbon/twine/lace/trim/etc... on your card. Easy peasy! Link it up for your chance to be Top Spool!

Have a great day, everyone!
