Hand Dyed Seam Binding

So this week I thought I would try my hand at coloring my own seam binding. Now seam binding is Rayon so I was unsure what dye to use, so I improvised and used some random ink I had lying around. One that made the nice pink color was Chile Powder from Ranger, I think its been discontiued now but I have a reinker and I just love the color I got from mixing that with a little bit of water.

All in all I am quite please with the way these turned out. Let me know what you think about the colors, which on is your favorite?

Brand New Store and Brand New blog!

Hello! I opened a new store on Etsy called Laughngypsy and thought I should have a corresponding blog to go along with it. Here I will add my art, new items in my store and of course some giveaways! Right now I want to start off by introducing myself, My name is Debbie and I live in Northern California I work part time as an office manager but I love to use my spare time and cash on crafting things. I love scrapbook paper and can never get enough of that! Also I love to do vintage art, any kind, canvas, layouts or just tags. I try to make my own embellishments to use to since the price of some of these items seems awful high to me. Though sometime you just gotta have them lol!
