Most videos mention putting the ink in a spray bottle, but since I don't own too many mini misters, I used the "moosh" technique. I mooshed the distress ink pad on my craft mat, spritzed some water and sopped up the color. That technique produced these results with Stormy Sky and Rusty Hinge.
My friend Cheryl Valadez suggested Copic reinkers and the colorless blender in a ziploc bag and I had to give it a try. Here are the results for that technique, using R85 and YG95. Thanks, Cheryl!
I love the intensity of the colors. The only drawback is the cost factor and the really strong smell that remains for quite a long time.
I used some of the pink ribbon on this card that I made using Tiddly Inks' Everyday Princess and paired it with a new Kid's Quote sentiment stamp that a dear friend gave me.
Let me know if you've tried dyeing seam binding and what inks you've tried. I'd love to see your results!
Thank you all for your birthday wishes! Turning 39 wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. And here's a shot of the sliver of birthday cake that I savored...
For those of you who asked, my daughter purchased the Photo Studio from Ritz Camera at the Ala Moana Shopping Center. I think any specialty camera shop might carry it. I'm looking forward to using it and seeing the results.
Thanks, always, for stopping by...Have a great weekend!
