*big satisfied sigh* This card turned out SO WELL!! (If I may say so...) Go ahead... click on the pic to see a larger version. Isn't it sweet? And I used ONLY scraps to create it! (Honest!) I made it for this month's WICKED color combo challenge in the demo forum at SCS.
This was my first attempt at dyeing ribbon. I started out putting the ribbon on my Baja inkpad and using a sponge dauber to pounce it into the ink, but I got better ink coverage on the top, where I was pouncing, so I moved the ribbon to my work surface (on grid paper), and just added ink that way. The gradation was a happy accident (don't you love those?).
Check out this post for a tutorial on how to make the flower.
