Willow with Lantern and Tonic Studios Bow and Sentiment

I don't claim to be one of the best colouring artists in the world but I absolutely love it and hope that if I manage to get enough practice I'll eventually get better! so for today's card share I've coloured the beautiful Willow with Lantern from Whiff of Joy and used it along with some luxurious rich red satin ribbon together with my wonderful Tonic Studios dies and embossing folders.

To start off with, I coloured in the Whiff Of Joy stamped image with Copic Ciao markers and cut it out with a large square cutting die.  I cut the largest Threaded Scallop Square to layer under that and added some trimmed down Mystic Vine large corners.

I made a metallic gold 8" x 8" card blank, I cut a white layer for on top which I embossed with the Tonic Studios Amelia Embossing Folder which then had the edges inked.  I added some ribbons but before sticking them in place I trimmed one of the Christmas Sentiment Toppers down, inked the edges to match and cut a slit top and bottom so I could slide the ribbon through.  They were then stuck in place.

I cut the smallest bow out of the new Large Dainty Bow die set and glued it together before positioning it on the corner remembering that it has to be above the bottom edge of the card to enable it to stand up.

I finished the card off with a few little red pearls here and there.

I hope you like it,
