Craftygirl's Love Hand - Rainbow

For this week's One Stitch at a Time Challenge (theme: Anything Goes), I used Love Hand Doodle by CraftyGirl Creations, available at StitchyBear's Digi Outlet. After playing with several ideas, I ended up making two complementary cards. You can read about the copper-hued version in a separate post.

For this card, I used the back of the pre-embossed paper I used for the other version. I filled the debossed sections with a white glaze pen. I also used my favorite corner punch.


I colored the image with Copics; I actually did it twice, because I didn't like my coloring the first time. It's fun to color, though! I colored the drywall tape with a black Copic.

I almost always use a fork to make bows, but the Delicate Bow Tutorial at Useful DIY made it easy to make this fancier version. It uses up a lot of ribbon, but it really does come out looking good. I must admit I'm a little proud of how I was able to line up
the center ribbon to show the words. I got this ribbon 2nd-hand quite some time ago, and it was just what I needed for this project. The primary-color ribbon has been in my stash forever as well.

Wow! These are so fun! I love that image. I can't decide which I like better...the white background or the copper. I like them both!!

I really like the colors you used to color in this image and the colorful ribbon on the black and white card. And used black and white for the card both are just beautifully done. I really like Love ribbon banners.:D
