ENCASED IN RIBBON - THE NEXT LEVEL CHALLENGE 2


After another busy week over at The Next Level, I finally managed to grab a few moments over the weekend to put together my Design Team card. The Challenge for this week is to encase your image with the really pretty Ribbon Border, originally designed by Claire Brennan, and the tutorial for this can be found in this week's issue.

I decided to use a stamp set by Hampton Art, Clear Expressions range, designed by Diana Kovacs, Interactive Corset ATC. The set has several different basque's, tiny buttons, lace etc - and is a really pretty. I embossed the image with black shimmer, and layered the basque up with a split front, and added tiny hooks for authenticity.



The paper again are my usual mixture of digital, but the floral border one is from Lola's Boudoir range from Pink Petticoat. The really pretty flowers on the front of the card and the tiny roses are both from Joanna Sheen. Inside the card I added another basque embossed image from the set. The images were coloured with Copic markers.



I made a box envelope to take the height of the card with the various embellishments and added another little basque detail on this in addition to the matching ribbon.



Thanks for stopping by and taking a look and if you have the time please leave a comment with your thoughts.

Thank you xxx
