Dyed Ribbon

This is ribbon I dyed last spring.. I wanted you to see how ugly it was and how beautifully it is going to work up into pansies. It is just cheap, unwired, polyester ribbon about 3/4" wide... I soaked it in water and brushed on thinned alcohol dyes ... mostly blue on one edge -pink on the edge. It turned out uneven, streaked and quite ugly but before I dyed some silk ribbon I decided to gather some of the ugly some into a pansy... And I like it...

The butterfly earrings are some I found at the thrift store on Monday and they seem to fit right in with the rest of the rhinestone butterflies on the block so I will have to find a spot for them..

Sometimes it is a miracle that you find the right things on the right day :)
The pansie is a beauty. Mother nature will be proud of you :)

Hmmmmm....I have some boring pale lavender ribbon. I think an over dye is in order. What fun.
