Tie-Dyed Christmas

When I saw the technique which Lynn shared as TLC197 on Splitcoaststampers today, I knew I wanted to give it a try.

The technique by Pat Huntoon of Technique Junkie Newsletter involved braying glossy paper with a Kaleidacolor pad and then spritzing it with Simple Green. After the background dried, I ironed it flat and added these colorful Kitchen Sink trees.

Stamps: Playful Christmas by Kitchen Sink Stamps

Papers: Glossy White, US White, Orchid Opulence by Stampin' Up

Inks: Calypso by Kaleidacolor, Orchid Opulence, Tempting Turquoise, Yoyo Yellow, Tangerine Tango, Riding Hood Red, Taken with Teal by Stampin' Up

Tools: Brayer, Spritzer filled with Simple Green

Embellishments: Rhinestones and Ribbon
