Thank you Julia, for a great challenge to get us using ribbon in various and unique ways. I made holes with my paper drill and threaded it through, and left the loop at the top and bottom.
Main image stamped on watercolor paper and colored with watercolors. Glitter (from Wal-Mart) applied on tutu and slippers later using a glue pen (also Wal-Mart!).
BG paper created on ribbed white glossy cs using direct to paper (swished pink and green across it randomly) and then stamped flowers on top of this. Had to use chalk inks and dye inks because of the glossy surface.
All stamps High Hopes Stamps.
