Hello, Its Kim and I have a really fun technique today. When I saw these brand new canvas butterflies from Want 2 Scrap, I knew what I wanted to do... Tie Dye! These butterflies will be released at CHA this winter, Jan 29-Feb 1. Donna's Mix'd Media Inx are perfect for this project because the pigment is juicy, the pads are soft. This works great for paper or heavier items such as chipboard or fabric.
I added the inx pad directly onto the canvas. Because canvas is such a heavy fabric, the pigment absorbs quickly into the grooves . This allows you to add many other colors until you achieve the look you want without spreading the color or giving it a muddy look.
I stamped this image from Donna's new stamps onto cardstock using the Mix'd Media Inx in Denim as well. Notice how rich and even the impression is. These stamp pads are a must have.!
Here is a card I created using my tie-dyed butterfly!
