Garden in Bloom - the Pink one!

 
Told you it wouldn't be long before I was sharing another Garden in Bloom creation...again keeping it simple for now... just enjoying playing around with the stamp set to see what is in there!

But first - a quick picture of this weeks Weekly Deals. Click on the picture for more product details. But I know that those embellishments and star dies will please some of you!
Right back to the card....
So this is my Pink Pirouette and Rose Red version. 
Note that the flower centres are coloured with the blob stamp in the stamp set! Cool!
Just dressed up with a bit of Dazzling Details on the butterflies and a bit of white cotton ribbon.Yes it is white - well... actually was white to be more accurate... 

So a quick Tuesday Tip for you - it is so easy to colour the white cotton ribbon armed with just a marker pen - or an ink pad... 

I just pulled the Rose Red marker pen along the ribbon - both sides- and then left it to dry for a while (or you can speed up the drying process with a quick blast of a heat gun...but do be careful... of both your fingers and not scorching/overheating your ribbon...) 

You can also colour the ribbon armed with an ink pad and a dauber. Place the ribbon on the ink pad with the dauber on top of the ribbon - drag the ribbon through between the ink pad and dauber - turn the ribbon over and repeat... leave longer to dry...

In fact if there is one ribbon reel I recommend to buy - it is this one - it is so easy to colour and dries pretty quickly too - an asset in your craft stash until you can afford to buy lots and lots of co-ordinating ribbon....
