A Spoonful of Sugar Challenge 14 - 3 Different Ribbons
Good afternoon, I hope you are all enjoying your weekend, despite the awful weather. Why is it that if it's not raining, it's so humid that you have no energy to do anything? I don't remember our Summers being like this when I was younger, but I suppose that's a sign of getting old!
My card today is for A Spoonful of Sugar's challenge, which is to use 3 different ribbons on your card. I love using ribbons but I have to admit that I found this one quite difficult, not helped by the fact that I only started with a small card. If I'd thought this through I would definitely have used a large card with lots of room on it!
Anyway on to the card, the image is another Hanglar & Stanglar, coloured with a mixture of Pro-Markers, normal colouring pencils and Sansador, finished off with a touch of Stickles on her bag and socks. The backing paper is some HOTP that I've had for ever and a piece of one of Joanna Sheen's lace papers, the ribbons are all from Poppicrafts and the sentiment was done on the PC.
I hope you like her, I think she looks like such a "girly" little girl, the type who has ballet lessons etc. It amazes me how these little characters can have such different personalities when they have no facial features.
