http://www.etsy.com/shop/PrairieBirdBoutique. I have had a love affair with vintage seam binding for some time now using it on my altered plaques etc but have really become smitten with the imperfectly perfect look of crinkled seambinding. Patsy has the most gorgeous wrinkle ribbons...straight from wrinkle heaven. These are the types of wrinkles you want to KEEP! I don't know if I can pick a favorite color...she has the full rainbow! If I had to it would be this dark royal type blue...love it paired with my reds I adore. Patsy also sells paper lace in sweet pastels and offers up her own artistic creations. I can guarantee that you won't find a better quality and price. So I wanted to create some cards just for the sole purpose of show casing her ribbons...I carried the ribbons around each and every card and tied big double and sometimes triple bows to get that luscious look I love. If you are wanting to add a bit of "tea-staining" to your ribbons just use a little inking....you can see that I added it to my first card in the close up. Adds a bit of age to it. I have several other projects that I can't share just yet using her ribbons..but will be sure to share when I can. So if I were you I would go take a peek and visit Patsy's shop she is very sweet... a country gal just like me.... you will like her! ..BUT Please leave me a bit of ribbon! Tell her I said "Hi".....Well I am off to create some more! Happy Summer gals! xoxox, cherry
