Burning Your Fibers

Hi friends! Over the last few months, I've shared with you a couple of projects in which I scorched my fibers.  Today I thought I'd share a video tutorial which illustrates the types of fibers from Really Reasonable Ribbon that I've been altering and the interesting results.
Here's the video:
In the video, I share a few project samples in which the fibers have been burned.  Interestingly, rather than imparting a harsh feeling, this action often softens the look of be-ribboned projects. After the samples, I share a grungy card project from start to finish that gets a nice punch of extra texture and freshness with an assortment of burned fibers.
Here's a detail of the funky burned fibers.
And a detail of the die-cuts that I grunged up.
Hope you'll take a break from your day to watch!  If you are interested, a detailed supply list is available in the description box under the video.  As for my fibers, I used White Seam Binding, Metallic String Gold, and Metallic String Iridescent White, all available from the RRR shop!
