On January 19th I posted a group of cards that I made with the Charlotte Picture My Life cards that came on a sheet in the Charlotte paper packet.  I also made several other cards at the same time that I hadn’t posted yet.  Once I started playing with the Charlotte paper, I just couldn’t stop.  Kinda like potato chips, couldn’t stop at just one.  I really wanted to add a nice softer sorbet colored ribbon, so I pulled out the retired Color Ready ribbon.  I tried several different things but couldn’t get the nice soft color I was looking for.  I looked up and saw a dish of colored water.  I had mixed some water colors for another card (which you will see later) and the water was just about the color I was looking for, so I dropped the ribbon in the bowl and let it sit in the colored water for about a half hour. Once it dried it was perfect. I love how it turned out.

    1. Not that I know of. I just put it together. I used the color ready ribbon (retired) with water colors to get the soft color.
