May Arts:: Penny Black Collaboration
I love it when May Arts collaborates with another creative company. This week there is a ton of inspiration over on the May Arts Blog because the Ribbonistas have teamed up with Penny Black!
I created a wall or door hanging with some May Arts Ribbon and the beautiful Penny Black stamp called Tiger-Lily.
I was out walking one day this past fall and came across this piece of cut steel grate. After I washed it up, I pulled it out for this project. I started by stamping (with a bit of masking) two of the tiger lilies and colored them in with markers. I then fussy cut them and adhered them to the steel grate.
I decorated the grate with layered 7/8" cream crochet ribbon (368-78-09), 1/2" cream crochet ribbon (421-05-10) as well as 3/16" butterscotch/white stripes grosgrain ribbon (RG76) that had been tied in a bow. I also tucked a double bow of the antique gold burlap string (SM32) for added texture. I created the hanger with the grosgrain and burlap string as well.
Check back on the May Arts Blog for the hop participants from the past two days, today and the rest of the week. And as always, comment along the stops and over on the May Arts Blog for your chance to win some amazing products from these two companies!
