SDC 202; Use ribbon!

Corrie is hostess this week over at the Stampotique Designer's challenge and the topic of the week is "ribbons."
Incorporate some ribbon in your stamped project and enter your creation for our monthly drawing to win a $30.00 voucher to some stamps of your choice.

When I saw this challenge I immediately thought about making muslin ribbons dyed with Inktense® blocks.  I tore fabric into strips and wet them then applied color and pressed and twisted the fabric.

My background is a combination of sprays, Gelatos® and scribbles.  I stitched the fabric ribbons with a textured ribbon for the bottom of the card.  The Tweedles were stamped and clear embossed then colored with Copics®.  I wanted to dress them in swimsuits so I trimmed the image and drew new outfits.  "Marco and Polo" are placed in clip art speech bubbles printed from Microsoft Word®.  I added scraps dots and doodles.
Hope it gives you a giggle.
