RILEY1211, Buttons & Bows!

Hello, it's time for another challenge from the Riley and Company Design Team! This weeks challenge is Hosted by Frances, and she's challenging us to use buttons & bows!

I used the new Trapeze Riley & Sophie just released in the new Circus Line! I found this cool new card design called a 5x7 Double Twist Easel. Follow the link and scroll down to see Kim's instructions.

I thought this was a perfect design for this stamp. I coloured both images with copics. Then sponged around the image with soft sky. I also used the pennant banner stamp from the Circus Accessories set. First I stamped it on the main image panel, and then onto dp from K&Co.'s sweet nectar. I also used a fine tip marker to drawn the ropes longer.


The sentiment is from the new Circus Words set. I finished it off with some ribbon, button and twine!

I was really impressed with this card design, I hope you are too!

Please join in the fun, and make a card or project with buttons & bows and upload it to the Riley and Company Blog! If you upload to any forums, please use the keyword RILEY1211.
