Tutorial: How to Change or Decorate Ribbon

 My video today will show you 4 different ways to change the look of ribbon using a sponge dauber, sponge, craft ink, Shimmer Mist, and rubber stamp all from Stampin' Up!.

This was done using a sponge dauber by rubbing it across the ribbon using Shimmer Paint - Platinum.

This scallop look was created using the sponge dauber, Shimmer Paint - Platinum, and by pressing the dauber image along the edges.

This look is my favorite.   It gives a speckled look to the ribbon using a Stampin' Sponge and Shimmer Paint.  The harder you press the sponge, the more intense the color and filled in area.   I like using the lighter touch on these as shown in the bottom two ribbons.

I used the Stampin' Up! Confetti Stamp Set and Whisper White Craft Ink.  LOVE THIS.  The craft ink takes a bit longer to dry, but worth the wait.  You can really customize ribbons with stamps, adding in any design you desire.

Very Vanilla Grosgrain Ribbon was stamped with Marina Mist Classic Ink.   The ink bleeds into the fibers, but still gives a customized look to the ribbon.

Here's my video to show you how to create each look:
