I'm back again with another card using the new All Geared Up Collection released last week by Heartfelt Creations. This time I'm using the Nuts and Bolts Set.
I stamped the image with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and colored it with pencils and mineral spirits. (You can click on the photo for a closer view.) The 'frame' was made using one of the card fronts from the designer papers that I trimmed.
Today we are also doing a cross-promotional blog hop with Really Reasonable Ribbon - my favorite place to buy ribbon!!! I used their gorgeous Copper Forest Silk Ribbon and Bow-Easy Tool to make this beautiful bow! I love the way their silk ribbon drapes, so pretty and the 2 tones on the ribbon really make an eye-catching bow!
Be sure to visit the Heartfelt Creations Blog and the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog to see all the beautiful creations by the designers this week!
