Use Ribbon

The start of a new challenge over at Delicious Doodles Challenges starts today. This time it's Team A's turn to host. Use Ribbon somewhere in your project and you're in. Using a Delicious Doodles image as well and you're in twice - how easy is that? Or if the darker side of you wants to come out - browse through the aisles of Delicious Darkness. They'll both count as they are all from the pen of our Teri.
A simple ATC is what I bring you this week. Using Steampunk Heart.

This is also my second post with regard to the Creative Jumpstart program organised by Nathalie Kalbach.
The household item is corrugated card from a box some crafty stash came in and a fondant mould. The cardboard forms both the base of this ATC and the little "flowers". The card was cut into thin strips and glued together before painting with luminarte radiant rain paint in "autumn leaf" and "fern". Then glued to an ATC sized piece of card for stability. The ribbon wrapped round and tied off. A couple of swirls made with paper mache pressed into a fondant mould. When dry they were given a lick of "autumn leaf" paint. The flowers made by stripping off one side of the corrugated card strip and rolling up before more paint applied.
The heart was painted in a few places and the whiteness toned down with a light dusting of burnt sienna tint pan pastel. before sticking this down as well.
