Used the tie dye technique, then when it was dry I covered it in versamark and ebossed with hologram highlights EP. I wish you could see this thing glisten!!Stamped image on acetate with staz-on and attached with brads.

Gorgeous card! Love your color choices, too! I'd like to know how you did the die-dye technique also.

Thank you for such great feedback! I have to say it's prettier in person :)
The tie Dye technique is very easy. You will need a clear plastic report cover, or you could even use 2 pieces of acetate. On one side, drop several drops of reinkers in 3 different colors. When you are finished, close the report cover and use your brayer, or even your hand to "mix" the colors a bit. Do not do this too much as it will "muddy" the colors. then, reopen the cover and place 2 pieces of 4.25 x 5.5 glossy cardstock glossy side out inside the cover. Close it again and brayer over it. Wallah! cool background! What I do, if there are white spots that don't get any ink, I will take a petal point chalk ink and DTP with it to fill it in, and then buff it to remove the haze. I learned this from a fello demo in our local group.
