I have news!!! Exciting and fun news!!!
I would like to take this opportunity to invite you to visit the amazing and full-of-inspiration Cardmaking & Papercraft Magazine Blog that currently feature a blog post about my Tie Dye Transfer Technique that I recently developed. At the same time I would like to thank to Nikki and her team at Cardmaking & Papercraft for this wonderful online feature. Big thank you!!!
I was very excited to share my techniques and some examples of how these beautiful backgrounds can be used via a few of my blog posts recently. You can find them all HERE. I couldn't help myself and just had to spread the word so that more of you, talented crafty souls, can join the fun! It is such an easy, fun and low cost technique with amazing artsy effects that I think it deserves all attention it can get. So when the Cardmaking & Papercraft Magazine Blog agreed to publish about my technique and jumped at this opportunity with great joy! I made a few cards to show you all what the cards might look like. Here are some examples...
The card above was made using 4 Dylusions sprays - Pink Fuchsia, Pure Sunshine, Calypso Teal & Cherry Pie using a dry baby wipe, a rubber band, white cardstock & a water spray... it's that easy!!!
I used Pure Sunshine, Cherry Pie & Pink Fuchsia on this one. The white fower was made by dry embossing a vellum with my Damask, Cuttlebug folder and running a bit of Gesso over it. I sketched a 6-leaf flower on a piece of card which I then used as a guide to make 6 layers for my flower reducing the number of petals and hot gluing them together... simple!
Here's an example of more of a simple and cleaner card. I tried to keep the sentiment and embellishments to minimum so that the beautiful background would speak for itself. The background itself was made with Pink Fuchsia and Calypso Teal Dylusions. Pretty, right? :)
What do you think? These are only a few examples... the possibilities, however, are endless! You can make these backgrounds for any project, you can stamp on it, die cut it, heat or dry emboss it...whatever your heart desires. There are a few rules working with this particular medium, i.e. you have to keep in mind that it is water-soluble, but there are wonderful alternatives that also work. You will find all details in my previous blog posts on this subject. The Cardmaking and Papercraft blog post describes exactly how these backgrounds were made so have a good read and get inking!
