This card seems to be a bit more girly than my typical clean and simple vein, but still... a little fussy cutting never hurt anyone, right?
I techniqued it up by doing adding some color to the ribbon... very simple to do.
I just set the ribbon out on my super special misting background catcher (i.e. large priority mail box with the ends all pulled apart to make one large flat piece of cardboard; perfect for misting over and then folding up and sliding into a cabinet) and proceeded to spray it to within an inch of its life with various mists from Tattered Angels.
As the puddles collected on the cardboard, I'd just go back through and dunk the edges of the ribbon in them for a more concentrated effect. Heat immediately with a heat gun to set the colors.
I love slightly imperfect technique-y things like that. The blue/green stains on my fingers make me feel artsy :)
