CGC DT Post – Challenge #172

Hello crafty friends!

Hope you are having a lovely summer!…I can’t believe how hot it is here! (I never thought I would say that for an English summer but…little did I know!). Anyway…without further ado, it is time for another Crafty Girls Corner Challenge! This week’s theme is: “Add a Ribbon/Bow” and, as per usual, you get a chance to win amazing prizes from our super generous sponsors!

Prize ~ The 3 Digital Images used by DT

Prize ~ $10 Gift Certificate

Prize ~ 3 Digital Images

Since  August is a wedding season for many and the theme required a ribbon/bow embellishment, I thought to create a wedding card! I used a digital stamp called “Bride 2” by Morgan’s Art World which I colored using Copic markers. To me, this image has a romantic vibe so I kept the color palette relatively pastel and natural. And I really like how it turned out. Then I created a background stamping repeatedly with the Indigo Blu – Script stamp and Distress Inks in Worn Lipstick and Spun Sugar tones. I added a ribbon in a similar pink color and then I assembled my card. Simple but effective! I didn’t add a sentiment so that I have more options when I decide to use this card (ie personalize it later or use it for a “on your wedding day” occassion or even as a “congratulations on your wedding” card).
Do you ever leave your cards without a sentiment so you can tweak them later, if you don’t currently have a use for them?
With this card I am going to enter the following challenges:

  2. I did comment, but I’m not sure if it came through, so will repeat what I said about this gorgeous card, Your colouring is gorgeous and I love the touch of ribbon. Yep! I leave sentiments off too sometimes, which they then become “just in case” cards. Thank you so much for joining us in our Morgan’s Artworld Open Challenge at Morgans Artworld. We would love to see you again in our next challenge.
