--------------------

My brother-in-law and girlfriend are expecting a baby girl next month! I am so excited to be an aunt!
Anyway, they have decided to go with a pink camo theme since my BIL is a big hunter!
So this is the baby card I created for them:
I think it turned out soooo cute!

I fell in love with the CRINKLE RIBBON from 3 Girl Jam!  It is so fun to work with!  CI Shimmer and Ribbon...such fun products to work with!! ;)

When creating this card I probably could have gotten away using the Sterling Crinkle Ribbon from the Celebration Bundle......
but I wanted to change it to pink, to make the card even more girly!

So I had some fun with CI's paints!!

I used a paint brush to add  a little water and paint into a zip-lock bag!  I used Blush!

 I then "crinkled" the bag up multiple times until I felt as though the paint had covered all of the beautiful ribbon!
If you open and find you need more paint, just simply add a little more.  

I at first used TuTu Pink, but the pink took too light for what I wanted, so I then used the Blush.  But I was thinking how fun it would be to create some multi-colored Crinkled Ribbon with our paints!

Here's a look at the original Sterling Crinkle Ribbon and my newly dyed Shimmery Blush Pink Crinkle Ribbon!
I thought it turned out pretty cool!!

Lastly, two close-up pictures of my card:
Just love how the Crinkle Ribbon shimmers!

For the three pieces of "lace" I cut with one of my border punches, I used Tutu Pink, just love the shimmer!
Such a fun girly card!

I hope you've enjoyed my card and little tutorial!! ~ Kendra
