Ribbon Technique for CAS(E) this Sketch

I've been getting ready to go on vacation which means time away from work (not a problem) and time away from stamping.  So I had to sit down tonight and get to a little creating, as I'll be away from my paper, ink, stamps, dies, punches, ribbon, glitter, and embellishments for a week. 

So I decided to play along with a technique I saw on StampNation, and couple it with a sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch.  Here is the sketch . . .

Now this sketch just screamed "ribbon technique" to me.  I had seen this technique on StampNation, my go to place for creativity.  So with ink pads in hand, here is my card . . .


I used the corners of my distress ink pads to make the swirls, and then added my sentiment in black over the ink swirls.  I love the spots where the different colors blend.  This is a card that will likely look different each time you make it, but each one will have it's own unique look.  

 Such a simple card, and those swirls of color are just so bright . . . hence why I chose the sentiment I did. 

This technique was so simple, and yet this card really seemed kind of special to me.  Must be those bright colors!  If you're reading this, I hope you'll give it a try.  I'm thinking that a Christmas version needs to be done soon.
