I was inspired by Flowerbugnd1, but I added 2 stamped flower middles for the flower (one in apricot and the other in pumpkin), and I didn't have apricot grosgrain ribbon, so I used twill tape. I tried to dye the twill, but I only have pumpkin re-inker, and it was too dark. I then tried to wash some of the ink out, which gave a more pleasant color, but I'm waiting for it to dry. I really like the natural color twill, but I'm excited to see how the watered-down pumpkin will look when dry. Has anyone else dyed twill? Could I add water to the re-inker in my baggie?

Have you tried to "dye" the ribbon with a sponge or dauber and just run it over the twill?? Or use the dauber to push the twill onto the ink pad to pick up the color?? The card itself is just great with the natural colored twill though!! Good job!!
