*Colour Changing Primas*

The end of the weekend already.... time sure flies!

I managed to spend a good chunk of my day yesterday down in my stamp space. I made only three cards, but I had a lot of fun. I started playing with my Prismacolor Professional Quality Coloured Pencils, Odorless Paint Thinner and blending stumps. A card takes a lot longer to make when you are building up colour this way. My pencil crayon cards will come up in a few days.

Today, let me tell you how easy it is to make your Prima Flowers whatever colour you want! Simply use some water, some dye based re-inker and a container. I put the Primas in a container, spritzed them with some water and added a few drops of re-inker... swirled the flowers around in it and then let them dry. The flowers on this card started out as a very pale yellow and I changed them using Rose Red ink.

I now need more pale coloured Primas so I can change their colours to suit my cards!

This card used the sketch from Challenge #129 at Splitcoast.

*Cardstock: Stampin' Up! Whisper White, Rose Red, Regal Rose
*Images: Stampin' Up! All Holidays
*Ink: Stampin' Up! Rose Red
*Tools: Marvy Giga Scallop Circle and Mega Circle Punches, White Gel Pen

Great card, Nancy! I love this stamp. I will have to try this with my Primas. I have some of those little ones too, but never use them because they are pale plum and yellow...will definitely have to give this a try! :0)
