Google said that tie-dye is a trend that was hugely popular during the pandemic last year when everyone was stuck at home and trying different DIY things – colouring clothes in multiple shades was one of them. However, it seems that now everyone is obsessed with the style. Yes, tie-dye is still one of the biggest trends in 2021. So I made faux tie-dye background with brand new Tie Dye Motifs Stamp Set! Oh, it was SO FUN!!
For these faux tie-dye backgrounds, I ink blended onto whole A2 watercolour paper pnael with light coloured Distress inks first. Next, I applied darker coloured Distress inks to stamps, sprayed water over the inked stamps, then stamped them on the panel. As you know, Distress inks react with water.
First card: I applied Victorian Velvet Distress ink to whole panel. For Distress ink stamping with water, I used Festive Berries, Picked Raspberry, Fossilized Amber, Tea Dye and Victorian Velvet. I added Hibiscus & “hugs” sentiment on the centre of the card.
Second card: I applied Tumbled Glass Distress ink to whole panel. For Distress ink stamping with water, I used Peacock Feathers, Crushed Olive, Wild Honey and Broken China. I dry embossed the panel with the Mod Squares 3D Embossing Folder. I added Leafy Wreath & “Thanks” sentiment banner on the centre of the card.
Third card: I applied Scattered Straw Distress ink to whole panel. For Distress ink stamping with water, I used Fossilized Amber, Tea Dye, Festive Berries and Victorian Velvet. I added “Thinking of You” sentiment & outlined rose die cut on the centre of the card.
Last card: I applied Milled Lavender Distress ink to whole panel. For Distress ink stamping with water, I used Festive Berries, Fossilized Amber, Seedless Preserves and Victorian Velvet. I dry embossed the panel with the Ranunculus Bouquet 3D Embossing Folder. I added “Thanks” sentiment on the bottom of the card.
