Dream Valley 51 Ribbon and Bling

Our challenge at Dream Valley this time is Ribbons and Bling. Please ensure you have both a ribbon and some bling in order to qualify for our prize which is sponsored by Crafty Ribbons and will be a lovely selection bag of ribbons.

My design was created for a friend’s birthday.

DV Ribbons & Bling

I stamped the Stamps Happen Vogue Silhouette Stamp onto acetate and trimmed it out, and then glittered it on the back. For the ribbon element I tied two matching ribbons around the waist of the dress like a sash, before matting onto purple acetate film. In real life this has a shimmery movement to it a bit like waves on the shore! This was matted onto purple glitter card, and that in turn onto some gorgeous purple holographic mirri and another layer of the purple glitter. I coloured some silver brads with an orange copic to match the orange on the dress.

Sorry for the poor quality picture, as you can imagine with all that bling, and mirri it was very difficult to get a good clear picture
