No paper... couldn't do it
Wow what a hard mix challenge today... no paper. We could have a paper base and that was it. I took some pink satin ribbon that was about 3 1/2 wide and painted it with white, cream and ivory paints.It took lots of coats of paint. That meant lots of drying time. Out of that ribbon I cut 2 little hearts. I covered the hearts with white school glue and used a heat gun to make the glue bubble and gave them a really cool texture. When they were cool, I took a copper pen and went around the edges. I took another length of the painted ribbon and put drywall tape over it. I then stamped music notes and piano keyboards on it. I also added a chipboard tag painted and stamped. I added burlap and ribbon. Then I cheated. I hope Lydia will not call me out on this, but I used paper in my quilled roses. I just couldn't help myself. The card just HAD to have them.
