I have done real tie dye on fabric, so I really got into this challenge.
I used 3 reinker colors: Pink Passion, Yoyo Yellow, and Tempting Turquoise. With Procion(tm) fabric tie die, the three primary colors are used: Magenta, Lemon Yellow, and Turquoise, so I chose SU colors that were close. All colors of the rainbow can be made with these three primary colors.
The glossy piece was my second try. I used the same piece of waxed paper. The batik effect is more subtle than it was with the first try.
I chose my cardstock colors based on the colors that seemed to pop out of the spiral: More Mustard and Taken with Teal. I would never have thought to pair these colors together! I added Ruby Red flower centers. The twine is hemp, what else?
