Welcome to the May Arts/ CardMaker Magazine blog hop! If you came from Dee Dee's blog, you're on the right track! If not, be sure to start back at the beginning by visiting The CardMaker Magazine blog!
For my card, I thought I would stick with the upcoming Valentine's Day theme... so I worked with the "Lovely" collection from Authentique Paper.
I tried a new technique that I learned at CHA last week... but it didn't turn out how I envisioned when I added it to my card...
First, take your ribbon (I used EA09 which is very similar to seam binding) and tape off sections with washi tape.
Next, spray your ribbon with your favorite mist. The washi tape should create a mask and leave sections of your ribbon plain. Mine didn't work... I think the mist went through this particular washi. The technique DOES work though. I tried it at CHA and it turned out really neat. I need to invest in some thicker washi. I would assume this would work with painters tape or masking tape, you just want to be sure to use a tape that will peel off of your ribbon and not leave sticky residue.
Another good tip... if you have white ribbon and need a desired color- use mists! I buy a lot of my ribbons in white or cream just so I can get some use out of my mists and match colors to other embellishments.
May Arts will be giving away 4 spools of lovely ribbon (winners choice)... all you have to do is comment along the way!
Now hop along to Erin Thiem's blog for more inspiration!
