This is one of our camp cards for this month. It’s refreshing to pick up some spring colors after all that red and pink of the last few weeks. Still, I have a few more Valentines I want to try … next year.
I’ve seen, in person and on the web, a few techniques for dying this beautiful 5/8″ Flower Trim from the Stampin’ Up! Spring Catalog, but none as easy as how we’re doing it: put the flowers down on your Grid Paper and smoosh the ink pad into them. A firm smoosh gives you lots of color, a lighter touch gives you a hint of hue. Although the color is a little off in the photo above, I think you can see how great they turn out adding color this way. Bonus: no inky fingers!
