Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge 7!

It's time for another challenge at

                                          Challenge #7 Ribbon, Lace, and Twine, Oh My!
Show us your fiber side! Use ribbon, lace or twine on your project. Dig into your hoard and share how creative you can be with fibers! You may use ribbon, lace, twine, embroidery floss, string, yarn, fabric, etc. As long as you have something in the "ribbon" family on your project, you are good to go!

This is what I created using my 
packet of yellow & grey coordinating ribbons
from the April club assortment from

I used the ribbon instead of paper creating a matte for my
photo and sewing the strips onto my paper.
The background is created
by stamping with Pan Pastels,
dripping Golden Fluid Acrylic paint and finally
scraping Modeling Paste through a Crafter's Workshop stencil
then coloring it with Pan Pastels once dry.

                                                 Here you can see some of my ribbon strips,
                          as well as chipboard from Blue Fern Studios painted with fluid acrylic paint.

                                                               More of my ribbon strips.
                                 I stamped the sentiment (Sin City Stamps) onto a leftover piece
                                                     of the ribbon then adhered it to my photo.
