LNS and SCS Challenge Card

Yeah - finally got some time in to do this week's LNS and today's SCS challenge.  The following is the link for the talented "mocjen" on SCS, and you can see her fab gallery HERE. We had to case a card from her gallery, and for this week's LNS challenge is to make a card using product out of the new catty.  Since I don't have any for the new In-Color ribbon, Calypso Coral, I dyed a piece of Whisper White Organza Ribbon instead.  I love the sheer look of this ribbon and how easy it is to dye it.  I colored in the image with Island Indigo and Calypso Coral markers and then stamped in on a piece of watercolor cardstock.  I then filled in the color as needed with my trusty SU watercolor brush.  Here's the details:
Stamps: Simply Soft
Papers: Pool Party, Very Vanilla, Watercolor Paper
Inks: Island Indigo, Calypso Coral
Accessories: Big Shot, Vintage Wallpaper EF, Whisper White Organza Ribbon, Pearls, Watercolor Brush, Sponge, Dimensionals

Nice job with all of those new colors!! Your ribbon looks beautiful!! I think I tried that before, but it didn't work so well for me.

What is the trick to dyeing the ribbon? Do I use a bottle of refill ink?
