Dyed Gold Bow

Yes, I like the card better with the bow dyed gold to match the gold embossing on the antlers and the Smooch Spritz on the card front.  Now it all goes together!

I started the card by embossing a piece of Baja Breeze cardstock with the Northern Flurry embossing folder. I then added Gold Glow Smooch Spritz to the front of the card. I colored over Dasher's body with a Chocolate Chip Marker and went over the antlers with the Versa Mark marker and stamped this onto a piece of Whispe White cardstock.  I heat embossed the antlers with gold embossing powder.  This stamped image was layered onto a piece of Brushed Gold cardstock.    I first tied a piece of Whisper White Organza Ribbon onto the card, but later decided to dye it gold using my retired Gold Metallic ink.  To do this, I too a small piece of a Stamping Sponge and layed the ribbon on top of the ink pad.  I held the ribbon down with the sponge and held the end of the ribbon in my fingers and  ran the ribbon over the stamp pad a few times until I got the coverage I wanted.  I let it dry for a few minutes and then tied it onto my card.  I like this look better, and dying ribbon is easy using this technique.
