LOL --if this card looks familiar it's because I amended one I'd done earlier. I should learn not to upload right away, because I always feel the need to improve!! Although my picture taking hasn't improved -I can't get the green ribbon to be "unshiny".
I wanted to try the Rock & Roll technique & thought this would be a great set to use. The "rock" part went okay, but my "roll" ended up a bit crooked, lol! Plus, I wanted to try stippling --but have no stipple brush. So, I used a regular paint brush. Didn't turn out great --you can't really see the celery. I should stick to one new thing per card!!
I also broke down & used a teensy bit of the new ribbon. My good friend/demo gave me a little sample pack, but I didn't want to use any of it --it's so pretty & I just knew if I took it out of it's bag I'd be hooked. I don't want to get hooked on something I can only get for a limited time!! ::SIGH:: but I *do* like it!!

This is soooo pretty! I think you did a great job. Sure can appreciate not wanting to use those limited embellishments! You want to put them on so many things, but if you use it, you won't have it any more. Quite a dilema.

Very nice... I love the colors. I have this set too and love it... thanks for another way of using it. As for not using limited supplies, who are we saving it for? What I found is that if I use it, I find more... even nicer ribbons and embellishments than the ones I was hoarding....
