PTI Make it Monday 27

Colouring ribbon with copics.

I must admit, I love to do this, and am always looking for interesting white ribbons that I can colour with my copic or tria markers.

So, here is some of the fun I have been having with this challenge.

The first card is one I did for my brothers birthday. He loves guitars (owns several) and does not do "girly" at all. Which usually means no ribbon, but I figured this lovely ribbon that I striped in colours to match the card will pass.

Supplies: PTI sets You Rock and Grunge Me. Ink and card from Stampin'Up! in sahara sand, old olive and not quite navy. Copics and tria markers to match the cardstock as close as I could get with my very small collection.

Next, I dug out one of the fun ribbons I have been hording for a while. It is a satin ribbon that has been laser cut into a flower pattern. I coloured the flowers with my copics, a light and medium lilac and a light and medium pink. The bookmarks are made using the PTI bookmark die, and some simple stamping in basic black using the PTI set All Booked Up.

This final card was done to use up a little scrap of the striped ribbon from my brothers card. Could not let it go to waste. The sail boat stamp is from Stampin'Up! I am thinking I will have to send this as a belated birthday card to my step-dad. He loves sailing. I also coloured the sails white using some white craft ink, and then went over the stamped image with a very fine black ink marker to bring the detail in the sails back.

Hope you have enjoyed!
