Tie dye Ingrid

Hi everyone,

For those of you in the UK,phew it's been a wet few hours! Even had some rainwater coming into the airing cupboard.......don't ask how but I was not too impressed :(

Anyway,a double delight for you today. Firstly,I am using the lovely new stamps designed by the fab Darcy from Paperartsy and secondly the background I have stamped them on was sent to me by the wonderful Ingrid. She created them using the technique she shows here. Please pop over and have a look as you can get some wonderful effects from this technique. Luckily for me,Ingrid has kindly sent me a few and I have been having fun using them,so there is more to come. I am lucky to have such a generous crafty friend huh :)

So,I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:

That's Crafty,Stamping Ground here
Stamping Sensations, Anything Goes here

Hope you like it

  1. Donna, this is gorgeous! I just love Ingrid's tie dye technique, I'm currently making a card also, using that technique! I love the contrast of the black on the beautiful colours of the background! Well done to both of you! :)

  2. Fabulous Donna.....and you've got the new Darcy stamp set I want! Just followed the links, great tie die technique. Ruth x

  3. Hi Donna!
    Just seen this! I love what you did with it, the stamps are great! I must look them up. I really like the PA stamps in general. I like the contrast of the stamping and highlights and the panel on the white base. It's really fun to see what other crafters can do with your work. I can't wait to play with your backgrounds! What a lovely surprise! Thank you!! Xx

  4. That's impressive and outstanding beautiful - a happy collaboration of two gifted artists!

    Happy evening --hope your airing cupboard is okay again... blast it!
