Watercolor TieDye Paper

So many people have asked me how I make my Watercolor Tie Dye paper, that I decided to attempt a tutorial on how to do it, please be gentle with me cuz I'm not really sure how to do this!!!!

Step 1: Gather Supplies, you'll need re-inkers, a spray bottle of water, a palette, and a brush.


Step 2: Spray your neutral paper with water until water runs off from it.



Step 3: Add re-inkers into palette.




Step 4: Randomly adding color to your paper, starting with your lightest color, working toward your darkest color.


Step 5: Continue to add color until you have the coverage you want.




Step 6: After you have all your colors added, spray the paper again. At this point you may wish to spray with a mixture of water, Pearlex (SU no longer sells this) and hairspray. You could use plain water, the Pearlex just gives it a nice shimmer.



Step 7: Finish your card as desired. This card is a CASE of the card on page 59 of the current Stampin' Up! catalog.
