This is my second post for today, so please scroll down to see my Weekend Sketch Challenge post!
I am so excited to be hostessing a challenge for this year's Dare to Get Dirty Challenges! I chose to use a Previous Fan Club Gallery theme..."Tie One On"! (Hint...it has to do with ribbon.. :-) You can read all about my challenge HERE (you need to be a Fan Club member to see these challenges)! Oh...and the fabulous Susan Roberts (aka Rainy) was kind enough to create a sample for this challenge! You can see her sample in the "DTGD09Lauraly ~ Tie One On!" thread over at Splitcoast!
This is the sample I made. I used the ribbon to create a lattice "background" over the K & Co. patterned paper. I started by making light pencil lines where I wanted my ribbon to go (using a ruler of course :-), then I used a double stick adhesive to adhere the ribbon over the pencil marks. To secure the edges and prevent the ribbon from fraying, I stitched around the edges.
The frilly, scrolly things are die cuts I added (from some Cuttlebug dies I have) behind my Label One Nestabilities layer. I used the Hostess set Wings of Friendship for my focal image and the En Francais background stamp for the subtle scripted background.
Well, I'm headed back over the Splitcoast to check out all of the other Dare to Get Dirty challenges going on... See you there! ~Laurie
