Puffy Ribbon Technique

Hello, It's Connie again! I have a super quick and easy ribbon technique for you today! I was not sure what it is called so I decided on the puffy ribbon technique. If you have a better name, or know what it is called, please let me know! LOL!! Here I have used some 1.5" brown wrinkled satin ribbon, and some jute string. I took some small pieces of twine, and tied it around the wrinkled satin ribbon about an inch apart to give it the "puffy" portions of the ribbon treatment!

This wonderful Dahlia image will be released from Our Daily Bread Designs June 1st! I stamped it four times, colored each image with copics and cut out each layer to
give it some dimension! The base of the card was stamped with the Crocheted background stamp (which will also be released June 1st) in early espresso and sponged with crumb cake ink. The wonderful DP is from Prima, and this sketch is from this week's Mojo Monday sketch!

Thanks so much for visiting today! I hope you have a wonderful day!
