Wednesday’s WOW! #102 – Creating Feathery Ribbon.
I have a fun technique to show you today. I wanted to show you how you can create these wispy, feathery threads on your cards. You can see it on this card below.
Check out the feathery threads. This is a really cool technique. I have outlined it below.
This is using the Gold Edged Ribbon.
Trim off the Gold edges of a length of the ribbon.
Then gently pull out the threads of the ribbon to wisp them and give that feathery look. It will be easier to start from one end. You can use the Piercer or a large needle if that helps. You pull off the small threads running across too.
I found it helpful too to hold the centre of all the threads as you can, to keep them all together.
Once you have the threads, hold the threads carefully together and tie them in a bow. Trim the length as you like.
It’s a cool effect isn’t it? Vanessa showed us how to do this when we made the card at our team meeting a few months ago.
What do you think? It’s a cool effect don’t you think? Must try it again.
Below is a PIN-IT image for you to pin to Pinterest to have on hand.
I will tell you more on how I created the rest of the card too.
The card is using the retiring Breathtaking Bouquet which is a background stamp from the current Occasions Catalogue.
This is actually a one layer card but has so much shine.
The Breathtaking Bouquet background is stamped on the front of the card with versamark and then heat embossed in Gold Powder.
It is also heat embossed in Gold on to Black card too. The black card piece is trimmed around some of the outline of the flowers. Then the feathery bow was adhered with a glue dot on the sentiment piece.
This large Background stamp is still available. Check it out in my store now -> HERE.
Thanks for looking.
