Technique Tuesday--Dyeing Ribbon

Technique Tuesday Blog HopWelcome 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!
