Sanded to perfection!

I wanted to do something simple least it was supposed to be simple and fast.   I ended up making about 4 of there flowers to finally get the one that was the color I wanted....sheesh!  This flower was in the e-newsletter from Splitcoaststampers this last Wednesday.  Instead of spritzing the flower with my color (which was too dark for me) I just rubbed the flower on the stamp pad instead.  The background behind the flower is Technique Junkies technique called Sanded Cordinations.  I had gone to the local stamp store and they had a gazillion colors of this cool paper.  I didn't have ribbon to match this color so I used white ribbon and colored it with my copic markers.  The only thing I don't like about doing that is that the ribbon is a little stiff when you are done.

Accident update:  Still waiting for the car....hopefully tomorrow!  Still seeing the chiropractor and massage therapist but this week I'm finally starting to feel a little better!

oh love that sanded background! And such a pretty flower as well. I color my ribbon but run it through my fingers a couple times to soften it again. Sometimes that works and sometimes not.
