Just add ink - challenge #32

This weeks Just Add Ink challenge was to add material to your project. I was inspired to use my favorite Melon Mambo ribbon. There's nothing like opening a new roll of ribbon and I've been wanting a reason to use my Old Olive ribbon.
I also decided to have a go at embossing with white embossing powder and try some spongeing techniques.

I rippled my ribbon and stuck it down with tacky tape.

I don't know why I hadn't tried this before! I sponged using a post it note on the right hand side to get the criss cross pattern. Oooh I love old olive.
For this one I cut wavy patterns out of paper then sponged in different layers.

I so enjoyed making these cards. It just goes to show how you can have different looks with the same supplies.
