Marvelous Monday 1-12-09

I know we have lots of great new Valentines sets and projects but I thought I’d pull one out from last year.  This set is on the dormant list now, but I think you will probably find it in the new catalog.  Either way I know it’s not being retired so I thought I’d show it off.  Maybe I’ll try and add some more samples using the great big shot top note die and the mini catalog sets.

heart-day-ribbon-edgeThis is another Marvelous Marker technique.  This technique is great because it allows you to get more versatile colors with just a white roll of ribbon.  It’s actually really easy all you need is your white ribbon, your stampin’ write marker and scratch piece of paper.

To color the edge of the ribbon simple drag the brush edge of the marker along the edge.  Don’t worry if you go off the edge a little bit because once you tie it you really don’t notice.  I had fun with this technique and used it as just an accent.  You can also see it on my Celebrate page for the Freewheeling Friday Post on January 2nd.

So give it a try and see what you can come up with.
