Technique Tuesday--Dyeing Ribbon
March 07, 2023
Welcome to this month's episode of Technique Tuesday Blog Hop where Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from across the globe join together to inspire you with a papercrafting technique. March Feature: Ribbon Techniques!
I love, love, love ribbon on handmade cards. They add touchable texture and can be customized--what's not to love??!!! For today's handmade card share, I'm featuring how to dye ribbon.
This technique is super simple, easily accessible to new card-makers but loved by veteran crafters. One of my recent discoveries is how cool the Windowpane Check Ribbon looks when you dye it! With its white background, it's a natural for adding color.
With the beautiful mountains featured in Enjoy the Journey Designer Paper, you have an obvious focal point. I used another piece of Enjoy the Journey Designer Paper for the background and a few dots for accent.
My handmade card needed "a little something" and I reached for my favorite Windowpane Check Ribbon. The color wasn't quite right, so I simply grabbed my Mint Macaron Dark Stampin' Blend to soften the white and tie the ribbon into my card base color. Voila! A little something that ties together all the components of my handmade card and elevates the whole design.
Now head on over to the next blog for more Ribbon Technique inspiration!
