Oh yes New Zealand is still shaking as often as the tectonic plates can manage to make it. In a few million years those mountains will be worth a visit.
Back to matters closer to home! This week at Craft-Room it is time for Annie's first challenge, and she has chosen a great one, Ribbon and Lace.
Our sponsor for the challenge is once again the generous Crafty Individuals.
You will used by now to my looking for a different approach to a challenge. This one offered an opportunity to use another of the calendar holders I rescued from work at the end of last year, see picture above.
Ribbon Lace cut into strips and folded to make 3 ribbon flowers secured with split pins. These have been glued to the case with contact glue. Crafty Individuals fashion ladies stamped onto card, one model cut out and coloured with ProMarkers. The sentiment is also a Crafty Individuals stamp. By the Way the Red flower in the centre is made of white ribbon lace coloured red with Glimmer Mists.
Unfortunately the pearl topped brads make the design to dimensional to close the case but as this is designed to be displayed it's not really a problem. I photographed it in front of the window to show off the pretty effect of the Alcohol Inks.
