June Technique - Tie Dye

The Tie Dye Technique is very popular right now; it is also very easy to do.  With this technique you can create the look of Tie Dye by applying ink to a coffee filter.  The ink takes no time at all to dry, you then adhere the dyed coffee filter to a piece of white cardstock that you plan to use on your card.

Just like the days when you use to take a white shirt and tie it and then dye it, this is the same thing!  Take a coffee filter and gently smooth it up, now crumple it up!!  That is correct, you want some crinkles in your filter.  Then fold your filter accordion style.  Take a half of a baby wipe and wrap it around a "G", this will be your stamp.  You will want a block for each color ink that you use. Ink up the baby wipe stamp and stamp the block on the filter, first on one side and then on the other side.

Once you are done, gently unfold the coffee filter and let it dry; this will take very time at all.  You will want to adhere the filter to a piece of white cardstock so that you can attach it to your card base.

Let's look at the cards that the ladies made at class:
Card #1 - Tie Dye Sunshine
 This card just says sunshine and summer to me.  I love the Tie Dye colors of Dapper Denim, Bermuda Bay and Lemon Lime Twist.
