Baby Shower Card and Tutorial

This is my 2nd post for today. Please be sure to scroll down and check out my 1st post, it is of what I did during the weekend. Took lots of pictures, and made a lot of memories with friends. God is GOOD!!!! 

So for this baby shower card that I created, I first wanted to add a gold sprig to the card, but needed to make it white. Thus, here is where my short tutorial comes in....


Real easy... I decided to change the color by embossing WHITE on there, and this is how I did it!!!! SO FUN!!!!

1. I used a White Pigment Ink Pad. You can use any white pigment ink. Pigment ink dries slower, and because I wanted to add embossing powder to it, I needed the ink to dry slower.
2. I rubbed the sprig into the ink pad.... back n' forth!
3. I covered the sprig with white embossing powder.
4. Then heat set the powder unto the sprig using a heating gun.

That was it!! Pretty simple, huh?? Here is how my card turned out.... 



The triple ribbon was inspired by Richard Garay. Below I have posted a video that he shared to show how he makes his double looped ribbon. I simply added one more loop to make it a triple looped ribbon. Super Easy Peasy!!! Also, as you can see the gold sprig is now white (at least the outter parts of it).  I colored the image with ZIG Watercolor pens. 

Here is the video by Richard that I followed:
