Top Banana Challenge #6

WOW is Anna outdoing herself or what here - she keeps adding new twists and turns each week to the sketches she is putting out. I only hope you are having as much fun as I! So swing over there and give her sketch a go - don't forget to leave a link and she'll add your card to here picture scroll too!

ok so this week I had my Basic Grey Euphoria paper out so
I had to use it cause those colors are just GORGEOUS you know!
This funky stripe paper was hollering at me to get out of that pad and be center stage
so Ta...Da... here it is! LOL The other papers are from the Paper Place and Hollo's.

I used Cognac Palette Ink to edge my paper - yep I am a paper edger I know I just think it really makes the piece look finished off instead of loose paper floating there. Anyway the Cognac Ink also gives it a bit of a distressed look too which is hip these days :)

I used some great brown rick rack that came from Really Reasonable Ribbon Club from this month and tied a bow. It is hard to tie a bow with Rick Rack let me tell you! The stamps I used are all from TAC It's the Little Things (TA-2876) which I stamped right onto the Euphoria paper with my VersaFine Onyx Black ink.

You can't really see them unless you enlarge the picture but I used Cloud 9 Designs Rain Dots - Sorbet Villa, the super mini ones. I thought a brad was too much there and plus I had already glued the stamped pieces down LOL!
