Grungeboard Bracelets

In addition to the funky shrinky dinks, I'm also making grungeboard bracelets for my two besties who I'm going to hang with at CKC all weekend.  I haven't seen them in over a year so I'm pretty psyched to get going.

I saw these bracelets over at Linda Ledbetter's Studio L3 and I decided I HAD to make them.  It took a while to get the hang of bending the metal bands- unfortunately my fav, the first I worked on (DUH!) went the way of the dodo when I bent it too hard.  My new one started to crack so I left well enough alone.

I've only finished mine- I want to make sure the fit is right on the other two and let them pick their ribbons out.  For mine, I used the TH stains to color the grungeboard and used acrylic for the EF.  For the other two, I used all acrylic- I didn't want them to bleed at all so I rethought what I was doing.  I did tint the ribbon with yellow and orange SU craft inks.
