Not "Mushroom" for Ribbon?

This fortnight's challenge at Top Tip Tuesday is to focus on the ribbon.  I found this quite hard to do when I was also showcasing a digi image, especially when I'd printed out the digi quite large.  So I had to put my thinking cap on.

I decided to use ribbon in a colour that I'd used in my image, but the dusky pink didn't show up much, so I used a thinner ribbon in a bolder red, and layered it on top of the wider dusky pink.  I also made a huge bow, and used up the scraps that were left over in a little loop, again layered, and stuck it underneath the image panel.

Here's what I came up with:

LOL...don't you just love when you print out a ginormous image and barely have any room left? I do that all the time!
I love what you've come up with for these mushrooms Annette. The ribbon idea of clippings and tucking them under looks GREAT! The colors are perfect together and as always, your clouds are amazing!
Hugs to you,
Lisa xx

Great idea to put the red ribbon on the muted one to brighten it up! It has a wonderful effect and really show cases the ribbon.
