Friendship Blossoms

I wouldn't usually post my entry for the Weekly Challenge on this blog but as it uses the fabby new Personal Shopper kit I will! These are sooo not the usual coulours that I'd choose but I have to say I'm totally pleased with the result. Great fun using a sketch too! Everything I've used is in the kit (with the exception of staples and fluid chalk ink).
The quote at the top right is a fabric sticker, I've just touched the edges with the ink pad (the fluid chalk ones are my absolute favourite at the mo) & let the ink 'bleed' into the fabric. Then I matted it on the pale green solid paper & swiped the edge with more ink, put a brad through the middle of the 'O' & mounted it on foam tape for dimension.
I took the ID bracelet (Karen Foster, also in the kit) apart & threaded some of the spotty chiffon ribbon through the holes, stapling them close to the ends of the metal (no tying required!) then I mounted that with a bit of foam tape too. The top border was cut from a co-ordinating sheet in the kit & the title is die cut.
Looby has also used papers from this kit as the sample for this challenge (her first sketch!) and to see another using the ID bracelets (you get four in the kit) see here

Love the LO ! And I have to agree I'm also smitten with the fluid chalks from colorbox. Vince taught me a tip using them to edge papers: you need to put the paper on very tick cardstock for support so you get a nice edge. He uses the edge of the cutting mat ! LOL
