It's the first of the month so it's time for another Really Reasonable Ribbon's Ramblings challenge!
This time we would like to see your "Picnic/Summer Fun" projects. Don't forget to use ribbon or trim also to qualify for our challenge. For all of the details and to see how you could win a Really Reasonable Ribbon gift certificate, head on over to our RRRR challenge blog....
...after you check out my card of course! *wink* *wink*!
When I think picnic, I think pretty basket and gingham cloth spread out on a shady spot of soft grass.
Jackie from Inky Antics sent me their sweet "Picnic Basket" and "Life's a Picnic" images. I love the fact that there is already a gingham table cloth in the basket. You just color it any color you want. Of course I teamed it up with Really Reasonable Ribbon's - 7/8" Red Gingham ribbon. They have any color and size of gingham you could imagine! Check them all out HERE.
I was focused on the card when I took this shot and didn't even see my fur baby Zoey in the background. I just about cropped her out but changed my mind 'cause Zoe likes to get her picnic on too. Big girl can eat some fried chicken! Just sayin'! :)
Here is a closer look at the pretty ribbon.
Here is a closer look at the Inky image and sentiment. It was fun to color! Woven baskets let you really use your shading skills. One tip I have for you this time is to use Sharpie Fine Tip red markers when you have a small area of red that needs colored. The color is vibrant and the fine tip allows you to color fine detail like the lines in the gingham. Love 'em!
I chalked the clouds in with a home-made cloud template.
Thanks so much for dropping by and taking a closer look!
I hope you will head on over to our Really Reasonable Ribbon's Ramblings blog, take a peek at the awesome projects the other girls have created, and join in on the fun!
If I don't see you back here before the 4th, I hope you and yours have a safe, happy, and healthy 4th of July!
