Lots of Dots....


Paper:  Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Echo Park Citrus Circle (sweet summertime collection)
Accessories:  rayon seam binding, Cherry Ice smooch spray, vintage button

Hello!  Big sale going on at Paper Maniac this week!  All wood mounted stamps are 25% off and all Just Rite stampers are 35% off!  While you are there, you will definitely want to pick up some yummy papers from a new company called Echo Park!  LOVE them!  I used some today on my card!  It is so fresh and fun it speaks for itself!  I added a sentiment and some paper piercing to the bottom.  I also cut out around the circles on the DP to create scallops.  
Using seam binding is all the rage right now, so I ordered 100 yards of it and decided to give it a try!  I used some Cherry Ice smooch spray, and sprayed about three yards until it was pretty saturated.  I squished it up into a ball, tied some twine around it and let it dry over night.  This morning, I untied it and had yummy, vintage looking, crinkle ribbon!  I will be making these in several colors.  Smooch spray is great for using with the Tim Holtz masks too! 

Hope you are inspired to make something bright and summery!  Thanks for stopping by!
Emily

I've also heard u can use re-inkers diluted with water and use that to spray onto the ribbon for dft colors... also walnut ink crystals w/water.. for the vintage/brown look..
