May Arts Ribbon and Faber-Castell week

 Sometimes you just want to add a little sass to some sweet lace.
 Awesome May Arts Ribbon and super fun Faber Castell make such a fun pair.  The two are getting together for a full week of inspiration and prizes.  Hop along with us and you could win a $50 prize pack of FC goodies and 3 rolls of ribbon.  Read all about it on the May Arts Ribbon blog HERE.

 My little girl is no girly girl so white lace really ain't her style.  So to add a little spice to a bow I was making for her hair, I brought out the gelatos.  You can easily customize any ribbon with all the cool colors of gelatos out there.
 Today I'm using May Arts 2 Inch Elastic Lace in white and Faber Castells Designer Colors pack in Tropical.

 To get the look just rub the gelato stick right onto the lace.  Then blend using the brush that comes in the pack and a little bit of water.
 That's it!

 Here's how the bow turned out for her.  Perfectly fitting her personality.
Alright now on to Mallika's blog HERE and if you want to see more inspiration from the hop, head to the May Arts Ribbon blog HERE.
