I made this card for a card exchange in my Close To My Heart unit. I was so excited to have one of the winning entries with this card! This was one of my first cards made with the Art Philosophy cartridge. I cut the bird, wing and leaf from the cart and layered them on the card.
Supplies used include:
X7143B Sonoma Level 2 Paper Packet
D1482 Love Life
Z2147 Smokey Plum Ink
Just in case you are wondering about the supply list. I did not have any Olive ribbon to match my card. I used Olive re-inker and White Daisy ribbon to dye my own. Dying your own ribbon is relatively simple. I have found the easiest way to dye ribbon in bulk is with the help of a ziploc baggie. I put reinker in my ziploc baggie, add a couple of drops of water, then add ribbon. Make sure the bag is tightly sealed! Then simply move the ribbon around in the bag until the ink is absorbed. I always start out with a small amount of reinker (3-4 drops), you can always add more later. Once the ribbon has totally absorbed the re-inker, I remove the ribbon with my tweezers. I then lay the ribbon out to dry. Don’t worry if your ribbon looks too dark, it will dry to a lighter shade. You could always speed the process by using your heat gun. If the ribbon turns out too light of a shade, you can do the process again to darker the ribbon.
If you only need one piece of ribbon, you can easily dye the ribbon by running the ribbon over your ink pad. I have found using a sponge dauber and holding the ribbon in place on the ink pad works well to get even coverage. Heat setting will quickly dry the dyed ribbon.
Hope you are finding time to create with the new Art Philosophy Cartridge!
