Quilling for the Ribbon Reel


I've never played along over at the ribbon reel - I've written down ideas for their challenges for months, and never ended up making anything (or more usually, forgetting to add the ribbon, lol). My dear Tammy is on the DT over there. Anyway, for once my ideas translated into a card that not only fits the challenge but even meets the requirement to add ribbon. Woot!
I'm also playing along over at one crazy stamper 's August birthday challenge :)


Supplies: chevron paper from Amy Tangerine; Hero Arts sentiment; Memento Tuxedo Black ink; Sakura Black Glaze pen; crinkled seam binding; big orange rhinestone from Dress it Up (the rest from Dollarama); rose-patterned washi tape from Recollections; flowers quilled by me


Quilling is very hard to photograph. This is one of those 'I swear it looks better in person!' things. I swear. 

I fussy-cut along the chevron pattern (challenging with this teeny chevron) and layered it over the washi strips. I arranged the quilled flowers, and stamped the sentiment, and promptly forgot about adding  the ribbon. It's doubled & tied in a bow, and then I sewed the bow on. I traced the sentiment with the black glaze pen, and added a couple of extra dots. 

Here is the inspiration photo from the ribbon reel: and the directions, to create a project 
using the COLOURS in the photo PLUS CHEVRONS, FLOWERS & RIBBON.

Check, check, and check! woohoo!
I suppose now instead of going back to paper puttering, I should consider making some supper...that doesn't sound like nearly as much fun.
xoxo,
Jessi
