My finished entry -- I made my own text paper, and dyed celery ribbon to fit the project. I used a ribbon slide for the metal. The sketch is from Amber's challenge for OWH.
Here's what I used to dye the celery ribbon -- 4 different Tim Holtz distress inks (evergreen bough, peacock feathers, mowed lawn, and festive berries) & 2 sponges.
Here's the ribbon, mostly all dyed -- just a little celery color still showing on the end.
I used ink in my embossing folder on the card on the left. On the card on the right, I inked the embossing after I embossed it.
