Default Ways To Use It - WT333 ALTERED RIBBON

Welcome to Thursday's Ways to Use It Challenge!

Next to being somewhat of a Designer Paper hoarder, I have to say ribbon comes next. While my stash is quite extensive, sometimes I can't seem to find just the right shade of ribbon I'm looking for or one that fits the card.
My challenge to you today is:

ALTERED RIBBON

Take any ribbon you have - this can include TWILL - SEAM BINDING - CROCHETED trim - basically anything you'd find in the ribbon section of your local stamp/scrapbooking store or craft store - please don't consider twine, however.

The trick is - ALTER your ribbon in any way you see fit. You can dye it by air brushing it, dragging it across your ink pads, tie dying, etc. - You can distress it or even stamp on ribbon (I LOVE how this looks) ...


Here's my sample for today's challenge:
Bright Bluebird



Please remember to use Keyword: WT333 when uploading your card. Click here to view the ALTERED RIBBON Gallery.


Need help linking a card? Follow these instructions!

1. Open 2 windows: One window for your card and one for this thread.
2. In this thread, click on reply and type anything you want to show before the link.
3. Got to your card window. Highlight the address for your card. (It says www. splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/showphoto..... and so on)
4. Click EDIT. Click COPY
5. Go back to this thread. Click PASTE.
You’re done!

Check out this wonderful alteration by Toni (ravengirl)

Fun challenge, Collette....and a useful one too. Great way to create exactly what you need in a ribbon sometimes.

I just did this with the CC on Tuesday! I took some of MFP's gorgeous white lace, dragged it across the daffodil delight pad and it looked bad. I was determined to get it how I wanted so I sprayed the lace with water and it turned out beautifully....though it was hard waiting for it to dry so I could finish my card.

Great challenge! Especially for a ribbon hoarder who also belongs to a ribbon company design team! LOL!

Here is my "Garden Of Life" card.

Thanks and hugs,

Okay, you guys are all so creative! So my first attempt at altered ribbon leaves me with brown stained hands, table, and anything else within spraying area...tried to use the heat gun to "heat set" and ended up melting the lace and having this weird "fishy" odor in the room. :P

On to my second attempt, color with Copic. No stains, much cleaner, no shrunken ribbon, no strange smells... end result? Altered Love Story ... MUCH better!

I did my best to give it a shot. Have a BUNCH of yellow satin ribbon so I decided to alter it to work for my card. Here's my card.

I intended on playing along sooner,but teh card I was working on didn't want to play! I originally planned to stamp a sentiment on a ribbon for that card, but OH WELL! I ended up just coloring a bit of Whisper White Ribbon with my Basic Grey SU marker...PERFECT!
I am SO much happier with this final product anyhow:
