May Arts has a ribbon lady, owner and original ribbonista Bethney, who sources only the best in trendy, high quality ribbon and in every color and size possible. It would be a shock if we didn’t have just the right ribbon to add to our project, our creativity finds new ways to use ribbon on our projects and so we sometimes stamp and stencil on them!
At the beginning of the year we acquired the awesome Dreamweaver Stencils Company from our long time friends, Lynell and Wayne Harlow, and we are still so excited about the possibilities with these quality metal stencils and so many different ways to use them.
It’s feasible to stencil embossing paste onto ribbon for a special sentiment banner (left and bottom right. credit: Pam Hornschu and Lynell Harlow respectively) or even sponge ink through a stencil to create coordinating ribbon (top right, credit: Pam Hornschu). We get excited thinking about different coloring and stenciling mediums to use stencils on our ribbons with diff coloring mediums that would work with this basic method. Today is our regular Dreamweaver Stencils feature day posting later on our blog, so it’s possible our designers projects will include some stencil work that are sure to inspire.
