Tie Dye Paper Tutorial

Hello to all my bloggin' friends. Today I have a fun tutorial for you. I have been using this technique for quite awhile and finally decided to share my "secret" on how to create it with all of you.

What you'll need:
 Distress Inks in various colors, Glimmer Mist or Smooch Spray in matching colors, white cardstock, Cutrtlebug and favorite folders, Distress Ink in Black Soot.
 First smudge the colors all over your cardstock, make sure there are no white spaces.
 (I know, mine has white spaces) then spary the matching Glimmer Mist over the same colored areas.
 It will look something like the above picture.
 When the sprays are dry, cut into the sizes you want to use. I used 4 inches by 5 1/2 inches. Then run these cut pieces through your Cuttlebug using your favorite folders.
 Using Black Soot Distress Ink sponge the ink over the embossed areas. This will really make the embossing stand out.
 Now pick your favorite design and create your card with it.
 I used Sassy Happy Birthday II for my card. I love the way it turned out. I popped the senti of course and added some bakers twine to finish off the card. Very easy and very fun.
Don't forget to stop back December 2nd for DT6 final blog hop and the start of the Grinch Game.
