I also spent today dying some white/cream lace that I want to use for a future project. The lace on the left seemed to have a protective layer and would not take the tea color (I soaked it for 30 minutes.) Instead, I then put 8 drops of red food coloring and 5 drops of blue into 2 cups of warm water to make the shade of purple on the left.
Items I used for card:
- Core'dinations 65lb cardstock from Jo-Ann
- Hampton Art Owl Stamps (SC0191
- Colored Pigment Ink Squares from Tuesday Morning
- 6"x6" Designer Paper Pad by Colorbox bought at WalMart
