This is exactly like Apricot/Pumpkin Looks Like Spring, except I dyed the twill tape with pumpkin re-inker. It was too dark, so I washed out some of the color. Once dry, the color is slightly darker at the edges. Whatcha think? Do you like the natural twill or the dyed better?

love the faux tearing and love the colors you used. I think I liked the undyed twill better but I see I am in the minority. Here is a suggestion though, perhaps instead of dying with reinker, distress the ribbon using the ink pad. I have done that with grossgrain and the gingham and it works fabulously and the color is more subtle.
