Happy Tuesday :) Did you have a good Monday? Mine flew by, which is always fabulous when a Monday does that, don't you think?
Over the weekend I was able to try my hand and using my spray mists to dye my own twill. Now I had seen people using spray mists to dye seam binding ribbon but I couldn't find seam binding ribbon in the store and I'm way too impatient to wait for the post office to deliver. So when I saw someone, Michelle Wooderson maybe, mention that they dyed twill tape with spray mists I knew I HAD to try it!
I bought my twill tape at Joann's, near where the thread and zippers were. Mine was white to begin with.
I covered my work surface with a plastic grocery sack and sprayed my twill tape with my October Afternoon Sprinklers, in various colors. Sort of mopping up the excess ink with my twill as I went along, until the whole piece of twill was colored.
Here's my finished product:
How fun does that twill tape look? Can't wait to start using it!
This shot shows how awesome the Sprinklers covered the twill and also the detail of the twill tape.
I could have let these air dry, but again I'm impatient so I sped up the process with my heat gun and in seconds I these were ready to wrap around the above piece of cardboard.
That's it for today! I have a card to share tomorrow using some of my new twill, but I also have an idea for a challenge I want to enter, so come back and we'll both be surprised about my post! Haha! Thanks for coming by today :)
