FTL101 - Twill Tricks

This rustic beauty is based on the FTL101 sketch from Clean & Simple Stamping. Do you like the sentiment - guess what stamp I used on the twill ribbon? WHOO HOO - I printed it!!
WHAT?! You don't print all your ribbon/twill? I frankly had never heard of such a thing until I recently took an online Jessica Sprague class - Computer Tricks for Cards! If you are interested in learning more about Photoshop Elements then this is the place for you to go! I have learned so much!! Any class that you take is saved in your class tab for future reference - you can watch the same lesson several times if you need to (not that I've ever needed to - yeah, right). Anyhoo, in a nutshell - to print on ribbon you print out what you want on paper first - tape your ribbon on top of your paper and then print it out (ignore the part where I printed on my paper upside down and missed the ribbon entirely - not just once, but TWICE - AARRGGHH!!) - Plus in true "Michelle" fashion - I not only stamp crooked but I also print crooked!! Whatever - pretend to not see that part while you are being amazed that I printed on twill!
That was loads of fun - I'll have to do it again - BTW - the inky smudges landed on my ribbon the third time it ran through the printer - but since it contributed to the worn look I had going I didn't sweat it. The flower embellishment is from Jolee's Boutique and the aged papers were from my Basic Grey Basics 6x6 pads.
