Tuesday Tip: Custom-dyed ribbon

When I needed ribbon for this card I showed you last week, I wanted something with both pink and orange tones.  So I made it myself!

Debra Burgin Dyed ribbonOn the left is 5/8″ Grosgrain Ribbon in Regal Rose.  Quite frankly, I didn’t realize this ribbon had retired!  In any case, it was too pink until I took a few drops of Tangerine Tango re-inker and a few drops of water and painted the mixture onto the RR ribbon with my Aqua Painter.

Surprisingly, even in the humid weather the ribbon dried quickly, and I was thrilled with the result.  The color is a bit uneven, which is the perfect effect.  The finished ribbon is on the right.

Tomorrow Stampin’ Up! will be posting its retiring stamps and accessories list.  Don’t miss my posting!
