Coloring White May Arts Ribbon

Please welcome back our Guest Blogger, Legojenta / Marie, with another great video.  This time, she's coloring ribbon. 



Hi everyone! It’s me, Legojenta, or Marie if you prefer, here again. Today I’m sharing with you a video I made, showing different ways you can color white May Arts ribbon. I used some different inks, as well as markers, to color both white satin and white grosgrain ribbon from May Arts. Please watch the video I made, to see how you can color ribbon to match your project =)




  • May Arts ribbon: 3/4” White grosgrain ribbon (QH01) & 3/8” White satin ribbon (HA01)
  • Distress Ink: “Barn Door”
  • Hero Arts Shadow Ink: “Soft Pool”
  • Memento Dew Drop Ink: “Rich Cocoa”
  • VersaColor ink: “Turquoise”
  • VersaCraft ink: “BubbleGum”
  • Promarker: “Rose Pink”
  • Copic Sketch: “B95 Light Grayish Cobalt”

    Super tutorial, Marie! Spritzing with Tattered Angels is another great way to color May Arts ribbons while adding a bit of shimmer.

    Nice video, very informative!! I color your ribbon all the time, using what you have and also, smooch, and copics markers, and glimmer mist and perfect pearls mist, and a mixture of distress reinkers and perfect pearls mixed together!! So many different ways to color ribbon these days, if you can not find the color you want, MAKE IT !!

    Thanks again, great product!!!

    Great to hear a voice from May Arts!!!

    Thank you for video. Just thought you might like another suggestion for coloring……you can wet the ribbon then sponge color on ribbon and the color will bleed automatically especially if you use Distress ink.
