PTI Stamp-a-faire: Tie-Dye Techniques - Dye Ink Technique
Ahhhh, the weekend I've been waiting a year for! Last year was Papertrey Ink's first annual Stamp-a-faire event. It was held in Cincinnati and I was so fortunate to be able to attend. It was awesome getting to meet in person all the wonderful PTI Gals whose blogs I read on a weekly basis! I am so thankful that I had (and took) the opportunity to go last year, because ...
This year's Stamp-a-faire event was held online! The PTI Gals did a fabulous job this year with all of the tutorials, videos, challenges, and forum chatting. It was even better than I'd expected! If you would like to check it out for yourself, you can find out all about it here.
The fifth challenge for the day was the Tie Dye Techniques Challenge. Nichole provided three different techniques/tutorials to achieve a tie-dye effect in our projects. Our challenge is to utilize one of the techniques in a replica project or in one of our own. If you would like to play along, you can find out all about it here.
I decided to start with the Dye Ink Technique and pulled out a few different shades of yellow. My first attempt didn't go so well. For my second attempt, I used Lemon Tart, Harvest Gold, and Summer Sunrise inks, swirled in one large circle. I added some water rings, as well as a few splatters for good measure. My hope was to produce something resembling a sun, so that I could create a card using the pretty "Sunshine" sentiment from the Hello Sunshine set.
Thanks to the PTI Gals for all the great inspiration they have provided!
All supplies are from PTI.
Thanks ever so much for stopping by!
