Those who were at my Open House event last weekend will have seen these up-close already, but I wanted to share with the rest of you how utterly EASY it is to custom colour your fibers, ribbons & twill using our reinkers!
Basically, combine a very small amount of water & between 5-10 drops of dye re-inkers (Classic ink) in a small cup. Tuck in your length of white ribbon, fiber or twill so it's completely covered and allow to sit for a while.
When the colour has been sufficiently absorbed, remove the ribbon from the dye mixture and let air-dry. Presto magic! You'll have custom coloured accessories to match your projects!
I had a great time experimenting with this and created 3 different twill colours, a bevy of Hannah fibers and organdy ribbons, but my favourite was the Tiffany ribbon. It has a thread of gold running through it, so I coloured it Real Red so it would be wonderful for Holiday or Valentine day cards!
