See that "ribbon" ... it's not really ribbon but actually a strip of designer paper that I have had for a long time. It was the last edge of the paper but the design was running lengthwise, making it hard to use. But then I started seeing some "faux ribbon" made from strips of designer paper with stripes like this. So I tried it out.
One of the reasons I had the designer paper around for so long was because I was having trouble matching the colors as they are such bright blues, pinks, and greens. I did find that the Papertrey Ink's Spring Rain was a close match so used it to color in the sailor hat (from Out To Sea, Papertrey Ink). I used only part of one sentiment in the set and added a scallop circle (Spellbinders) cut from Spring Rain cardstock. The background was created by stamping the various small images from the stamp set onto some K&Co. designer paper. I added some Close to Cocoa (SU!) ink around the edges and on the "ribbon" to help distress it all a little.
Off to work. Hope you have a great day!!
