rosette ribbon flower

Hi: If your interested heres the distress rosette flower I made. I took the Tim Holtz rosetted ribbon by idea-ology used the distressed marker spritzer with distress markers (worn lipstick, peeled paint, tumbled glass and applied it to the ribbon with the spritzer. It's really easy to use so if you don't have it in your stash I would get one. All you do is put in the marker of you choice and aim the spritzer to the area you want to spray. heres the ribbon and makers I used.. once I applied my ink I clippd the netting around the flowers so I could create my flower. I cut a circle out using a circle punch added the red line tape to the circle punch out and attached my ribbon. to finish it I adde a rose colored pearl from my stash. The tag is in the previous post if you want to see the flower. Thanks Chary

Anything with Pearls

HI All: This week on the Simon Says Wedesday Challenge Blog the theme is Anything goes with Pearls. I totally had fun and used my Julie Nutting doll stamp, Marion Smith Mad Tea Party paper, some embossing paste, and of course Pearls. I used Turquoise perfect pearls mist, the original perfect pearls mist, some pearl stickers from my stash (I think from Michaels dollar bins), Burlap ribbon from Hobby Lobby. Also my background is distressed ink (worn lipstick, mowed lawn, broken glass, squeezed lemonade). I colored the lace trim with mowed lawn distressed ink. Hope you like it
