Ribbons and Bows

I hope you have had the chance to see the brand new Dies by SCACD.  They are even more amazing than the last release, and that is no small feat! 

While waiting for mine to arrived, I played some more with the ones I already have.  This is the Ribbons & Bows Dressform.  I love the way the black jumps off the background paper from the Teresa Collins - Tell Your Story collection.

I wanted to emphasize the sewing theme so did not only the shaped card, but some faux stitching on the edge.  The black buttons in the corner were part of my stash.  Those wonderful scissors are from the Maya Road mini chipboard Sew Easy collection.  There are some super fun shapes to play with in all of these different collections.  I painted the scissors with my Viva Decor Precious Metal Paint in silver.  The pearls in the flower centers are created using the Viva Decor Pearl Pen in white.

I love that certain shapes or items will sometimes spark my creative brain into action.  That is how it was with this when I first cut the Ribbons & Bows Dressform.  What has sparked your creativity lately?
