One last thing to show you from my stamping retreat. We created this paper below using a regular sheet of copy paper. We inked it three separate times with three different color dye inks. After swiping the ink across the paper, we misted it with water and then dried it with a heat gun. We repeated the process three times. We then crumbled the paper into a ball, opened it up and then swiped a silver pigment ink pad across the top. The final step was to turn the paper over and iron it. It created this marvelous faux stone look. I can't wait to try this with other colors of dye inks. The only problem is I can't remember exactly which color combination I used to create this, but I think it may be lettuce green, rust and a dark brown. Once our paper dried, we made these lovely little tins from empty International Coffee cans, just covering the outside basically with our paper. They had someone pre-drill holes on each side so we could add our wire and beads. The decoration on the front I added myself, a recent RAK from my friend, Kris.
