Adventures in Crinkle Ribbon

Well, I have been promising you a pic of all the crinkle ribbon I have been making!  So here it is!

  Above are little samples and a close up of different shades of pink. The one in the middle I added a little black ink to the pink and I loved the result   Some looked shaded with varying hues, some looked quite antique, but all are beautiful and unique.  Looking at other blogs I realize my samples are super crinkled, but you can smooth them out with an iron and then spritz with water again and crinkle slightly!   I used all different kinds of ink-- from sprays, to stamp pads, to re-inkers and found they ALL work.  If you are interested in making your own crinkle ribbon there are LOTS of video's on You tube.  I watched 3 different ones and each gal did it a little differently.  When I get some larger pieces done I will give some away as blog candy, so keep coming back!  Love your comments and/or questions!  HUGS
