At some point in her crafty life, Clare would love to try ribbon embroidery. She recently found some fabulous French Ombre ribbon flowers on Etsy at a store called Grandmas Flower Garden. Clare hopes to try this technique some day, but just can't add anymore stashes, to the stashes she already has. And she loves to save money by making her own with supplies she already has! So that got her thinking...why can't she try this look with paper and Art Glitter!?
You can see the ribbon flower below.
Clare started by painting the ombre first. For the Yellow flower and pink flower she used Tombow markers and a small water color brush. For the purple flower and the leaves she used the Copic markers.
For the center of the larger flowers, Clare used a shank button in the center of the flower and covered it with Art Glitter Gala Glitz. Since one of her buttons was fabric Clare used the Art Glitter Dries Clear fabric glue on that one.
