Smooch Spritz Dye

Today we are going to make this cute envelope with lots of techniques along the way

So if you are looking then you may realize that we do not manufacturer this color flower, but did you know that you can have any shade or color of flower that you wish? Let's jump in and see how.

Start with a Ditto flower and your desired color smootch *hint, leave the flower on the plastic backing*

Spray your flower until the entire flower is covered. Remove the flower and set in the sun to dry. For the next step you will need your plastic backing with all of that ink on it.

Next we are going to match some lace to the flower. Using the excess ink on the backing rub your lace into the ink, once it is nice and covered add some water to really coat the lace.

Look at how bright the lace turned out. Set in the sun to dry, mine was dry in about 5 min but I do live in AZ so you may want to heat set it.

Once both are dried assembly of the card is simple. I stamped an image onto yellow patterned paper ( the same as in the top of the card) and cut the image out. Next lay a strip of adhesive onto the card, I used tacky tape. To adhere your lace bunch and gather as you go and press the lace into your adhesive. Next adhere your flower over top of the lace, and your heart on top of the flower. I find that Zots work the best. And for a finishing touch at the top, just cut some paper at an angle. And there you have a finished card. Can you imagine the possibilities of dying everything to match your projects? At our house we dye EVERYTHING, if you can't find something to match just dye it :)
