Today I wanted to showcase a technique along with my fun and funky “tie dye” Customer Thank You cards! I took a lot of photos so it will help you try this technique for yourself. It is a lot of fun and EASY!
Here is my card – I used the Pretty Pumpkins Bundle and the Biggest Wish Stamp Set:
Isn’t it fun and festive? So, here is how you do it! You will want to have our wonderful 100 lb fluid watercolor paper on hand (I love our watercolor paper), a watercolor brush (aqua painter), 4 ink refills, one of our blocks to use as a color palette, some paper towel (as this can get a little messy), a heat tool to help the watercolor paper dry faster, and a “splotchy” rubber stamp (like the one I used in the Gorgeous Leaves Bundle), and a few ink pad colors that coordinate.
With your stamping blog and ink refills put 4 puddles of color on it. You will basically pretend you are 5 and color the watercolor paper. You will want to gently squeeze your watercolor brush to help move around the ink – you’ll see some pretty cool variations with the ink. Go with it. It will look messy but trust me.. the end result rocks!
You’ll want to make sure it is dry. Like I said, if you have a heat tool that will help. Use a paper towel to blot dry it if you have puddles especially around the edges. I used the Gorgeous Leaves Stamp Set “splochy” stamp to stamp all over it with the Rich Razzleberry Ink. I did also use the splotchy stamp from the Sale A Bration set called Textures & Frames. It just added a little extra grunge to it!
Now, you are ready to cut out those Pretty “Funky” Pumpkins with the dies from the Pretty Pumpkins Bundle. Make sure you have your Stampin Cut and Emboss machine handy! I was able to cut out 8 pumpkins from our watercolor paper.
Super cool right? Just think of the possibilities of colors you can use and different dies you have on hand! It brings new life to all your die shapes (and punches too!). Its like funky tie dye (and I just LOVE Tye Die!).
I hope you will try this technique yourself! I can’t wait to see what you create!
