Tuesday Tips & Tricks: Dye Job

Hi there iCopic Lovers! It's Sheri here and today, I thought I would share with you a few different methods I use for coloring my seam binding. I used to buy it already colored, but now, I just buy a large roll of white seam binding it and color as I go and I always have matching ribbon.
The first method I use is glittery spray and either a bit of water or Perfect Pearls on a non-stick craft mat.

Smoosh (technical word) it around in this mixture, bunch up and wither set aside to dry or carefully use a heat gun to dry...if you're impatient, like me. :)

The second method using Distress inks smooshed onto a non-stick craft mat and another spritz of Perfect Pearls or water. 

After spritzing with Perfect Pearls

Crumple and set aside to dry.

 The third method involves our beloved Copic Markers. Just scribble a couple of times on a non-stick craft mat, spritz with either a bit of colorless blender solution or a bit of alcohol.

 and ...viola! 
Below are the 3 different methods. Glimmer Mist, Distress Inks and Copic.
Have fun looking around your supplies to see what you have that will work too. I encourage to give it a try!
