Ombre Striped Ribbon Card
One of the most amazing perks of May Arts Ribbon is the variety of colors they offer in one line. And most often, if you are missing a shade, they offer the ribbon in white and you can make your own shade! This technique is perfect for creating any ombre project, which my card features today.
I chose to work with the Wrinkled Ribbon line in ½” inch, in the olive color family. I had on hand the Moss and Olive, but needed a lighter shade. This ribbon is easily dyed with alcohol ink or mist. I cut a length of it and with a plastic shopping bag as my base, sprayed alcohol ink and let the ribbon soak up the ink. I sped up the drying process with a heat gun.
Next I adhered the ribbon on the underside of the die cut, after having sprayed it with adhesive. Then I simply trimmed the ribbon, which was really easy to do since this ribbon is thin and pliable!
After the ribbon was trimmed, I adhered the panel to a white card base and finished with May Arts Faux Suede Leaves, a sentiment banner, two lengths of the Moss Wrinkle Ribbon and a silk artificial flower.
This card is so easy to make, and I am excited to try it in shades of blue, purple and pink!
