Dyed to Match Fiber Paste

Wednesday, January 29, 2014



Still playing around with creating texture and interest with stencils.  Today I've dyed some fiber paste to match the card base.  It has sort of a stucco type look that looks like it's been embossed into the card...love that!

Used two different colors of re-inkers to dye my fiber paste.  Just basically added a drop at a time until I thought it was the right color.  Then, using a spatula it was pushed through a stencil/template.  It takes a bit of time to dry...a couple of hours at least...patience...there's that word again! 

Next using my brand spankin' new die from WPlus9, I cut the tag, stamped the image and the sentiment.  Then colored it with Copics.  Once that was done some Wink of Stella was added for a little shimmer.  The camera or perhaps the photographer *grin* has a tough time showing just how beautiful the Wink of Stella look is!

Then I added a strip of ribbon at the bottom of the tag, knotted another piece of ribbon through the tag, added a few pearls.  Popped the tag up on dimensionals and done!

Here's what I used:
Paper:  SU! Blushing Bride and Copic Xpress blending paper
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black
Stamps:  Flourishes and Simon Says Stamp
All the other stuff:  WPlus9 Timeless Tags 2 die, Fiber Paste, SU! Pretty in Pink and Blush Blossom re-inkers, spatula, Memory Box Honeycomb stencil, SU! Kraft ribbon, pearls, dimensionals, Wink of Stella marker, Copics:  E42, R21, RV0000, RV21, RV23 and W1
