Create a texture tutorial

Hi there! Linda here... If you ever wonder what other technique you can apply to your ribbon stash, then this tutorial is for you! 

I use two 4 inch 1.5" champagne netting ribbon strips and place them next to each other as shown on the picture below;

Spray ink onto the strips and cardstock and let the ink dry. Mine took about 3 minutes to dry...

and here is how it looks after it is dry;

I use this patterned paper as background on my card. 
Here is the finished project. Double Tan color ribbon used and topped with paper flower. 

Other materials:
Printable vintage image
Crate paper patterned paper
Glimmer mist
Tim Holtz chipboard
Papertreyink cutting die
