Tie-Dye Techniques

Good Afternoon! Welcome to Papertrey Ink’s 2012 Stamp-a-Faire! If you are looking for more details about today’s event, please click on the graphic above to visit Nichole Heady’s blog for all of the details.

So, I’m back with another card using one of the techniques Nichole has featured over on her blog. I chose to use the marbleized tie-dye technique because it seemed like so much fun. So, I headed over to Target to get a can of shaving cream and got dirty. This was so much fun and the results…super cool!

I dropped raspberry fizz, harvest gold, and orange zest reinker droplets onto a layer of shaving cream. Next, I made horizontal lines through the ink drops using the opposite end of a paint brush. I also made vertical lines and the design looked neat, so I stopped there!. Next, I dropped some rustic white cardstock onto the inked and patterned shaving cream – making sure it was flat. Picked it up, wiped off the excess shaving cream and VOILA a tie-dye pattern was before my eyes!

Instead of using the tie-dye pattern as a background, I decided to use a die cut and have the pattern show freely on it. I chose Fabulous Frames polaroid die and WOW it’s super cute. I loved it so much, I added a heart die cut! haha

For the sentiment, I stamped a birthday message and decorated it with some symbols. The card is about 4.25″ L and 3.5″ W – a cute mini card!

Thanks so much for checking out my card using a cool tie-dye technique! See you in a little bit to share something new!

    Ashley, this is so lovely and vibrant. I love the shaving cream tie-die technique. I haven’t done it is such a long time. It’s time to do it again!ReplyCancel

    I love that you used the fabulous frame die for your card. (I am hoping the mailman delivers mine that I ordered today.) Your colors for your frame are so vibrant and pretty.ReplyCancel

    LOVE how your card turned out. Beautiful colors. Love how you did the frame and I meant to order the die set today but it’s out of stock now.ReplyCancel

    Nice card, great design! Whoddathunk, back in the day, when I was tie-dying and creating batiks, that one day I’d be “tie-dying” background paper w/shaving cream and re-inkers?!? Heehee! :)ReplyCancel
