Good Day, Sunshine!
I have had the Beatles bouncing around in my head over the past few days. With the 50th anniversary of Sgt. Peppers Lonley Hearts Club Band they seem to be everywhere again? I love there music so, I’m good with revisiting there greatness. Mike and I watched a show on APT about the making of this album. It was quite finasating to learn about insperation, the instruments used ( everything from a piccolo trumpet to a sitar) , to ground breaking technology (that today would be done on a phone) That’s crazy, right???? Sgt. Pepper changed the face of music!! I remember the first time I really heard A Day In the life, With a little help from my friends, or Lucy in the sky…..
I also, remember the first time I tie dyes something, it was middle school art class. Such fun! I think it just amazed me that a little rubber bands and some dye could produce something so cool! Then you add in all the different color combinations…and well, I could have tie dyed all year long…
When I saw this tie dye technique by Kim Jolly I just had to try it! This technique does not disappoint!! It is amazingly fun. Super easy to get the hang of. And the results are just totally cool!!! Kim has a awesome brain for coming up with new ways of thinking about paper and ink!!! She truly is awesome!!! Just like the Beatles?
If you would like to see more of Kim’s artful take on card making check out her Instagram.
I decided to combine her technique with the Sunshine Wishes Dies.
It has been a while sence I mentioned the “Holy Grail” of Stampin’ Up Colors. I used two of the colors for my tie dye. Tempting Turquoise and Daffodil Delight. The third color of the grail ,Melon Mambo, is use as a accent color for one of the cards.
- The tie dye layer is a coffee filter scrinched up. After scrunching up the coffee filter how you like it. The next step it to use a baby whipe to add color to the coffee filter.
- After the coffee filter dries. You can add it to a card pannel using a glue stick.
- The shimmer on the card is glitter embossing paste
- Then just add the dies!!!
- This card uses the same process. I just scrunched my coffee filter more like a cone. To add the tie dye colors.
- The sunshine die is cut twice. Once in Basic Black and once in Daffodil Delight. Then they are glued together so that the Black is peeking through
- The strip of glimmer paper grounds the focus of the card.
