Tilda with Peony Tails and a bit of a tutorial

Today, I thought I would share with you a card made with the darling Tilda with Peony Tails stamp from Magnolia, available for purchase over at the iCopic store, of course.
Supplies used:
Additional supplies:
Matting was done with my Cameo
DS Papers ~ My Mind’s Eye ~ Happy Go Lucky
Sentiment ~ Papertrey Ink
Next, it's Tuesday Tips and Tricks over at the iCopic Lovers Blog, so I thought I would share with you a few of the different methods that I use for coloring my seam binding. In the past, I would buy my seam binding already colored, but now, I just buy a large roll of white seam binding it and color as I go and now...I always have matching ribbon.
For my first method, I simply sprayed a bit of Glimmer mist along with either a spritz of water or Perfect Pearls onto a non-stick craft mat.
Smoosh (technical word) the seam binding around into this mixture, bunch up and either 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!
Thank you so very much for visiting today! Smile
