Dye your silk flowers – tutorial

Riddle: oval-all1How do you turn a daisy into a sunflower?
Answer: With an aqua painter and ink pad refills!

Yes, it’s that easy to go from white, to Summer Sun (or any of Stampin’ Up’s color system). Start with any of the silk flowers in the Pretties kit, an aqua painter and any classic ink pad refill. Place a couple drops of the ink pad refill in a plastic lid, and use your aqua painter to paint the flower. the aqua painter tip should be wet, squeeze the tube to control the water flow. See photos below.

Allow flower to dry and VOILA! We made this card at my stamp club this month, isn’t it gorgeous? The idea came from a card on display on the SU Hawaii trip. It opens in the center. See below for a list of the main supplies used.
