Misted Shine






I've got a quick tutorial up over at the Skipping Stones Design Blog for Tips and Tricks Thursday.
If you are frugal with your ribbon and save all the scraps like me, it might be worth checking out!



The final piece was inspired by the shoe over at Runway Inspired Challenge. Loved the colors, the color blocking and shine, which I've attempted to achieve with layered ribbon tabs and some misting. Yep, I have a fascination with Shine Mist.

  1. I love the shine! You're encouraging to get my spray mists out...they are feeling a bit neglected. Love the color combo!
