ATS Wed Challenge - Crinkled Ribbon

Our challenge =over at the ATS Wednesday Challenge is to use crinkled ribbon.  Never used crinkled ribbon? Me neither! HERE is one great tutorial.  I also got some great ideas from my buddy Donna's blog post, HERE.

I didn't have any seam binding, so I cheated a bit and used white satin ribbon.  I then dyed it with Tim Holtz's Distress Ink in Peeled Paint.  Then I continued on like the tutorial and stuffed it in the corner of a bag and then took it out to let it air dry later.  It was a lot more crinkly but I think in making the bow I ended up kind of ironing it with my fingers! 

There is a new prize offered every week on the ATS Challenge blog but make sure you use a stamp that is sold in the All That Scraps store if you want to be eligible to win!  CC's Designs and Sweet November stamps along with all the other companies that ATS carries gives you quite a selection to choose from.  You have until 10 PM on the Tuesday following each challenge to link your entry.  Good luck!
