3/26 Looking Fabulous!
This is the way I dye my Pretties Kit flowers. I squirt a drop or two of re-inker onto a plastic panel. The image sheet from the Stamp-a-ma-jig works great. Then I take my Aqua-painter and paint my flower with the re-inker. The flowers are so easy to dye and I love how I can make them match any color of paper and ink that I own.
I've been doing some spring cleaning this week. Oh my, this was long overdue! (Maybe should have started this about three springs ago!! lol!) Anyway, one of the items that I pulled out of it's deep, dark corner was a wooden chest that my ancestors used when they immigrated to America from Germany in the mid-1850's. They went the way of Louisiana and then up the Mississippi to settle in the heart of Missouri. Steve, the girls and I trekked down to that area of MO several years ago and meandered along the gravestones of people who made it possible for me to be here today. The chest doesn't look anything like it did when it came over though because in the early 1970's my mom decided to strip it and paint it!! (That was before refinishing antiques was a huge no-no! lol!) But the metallic blue, black and silver that she painted it works well in my kitchen so that is where I'm going to sit it for a while. Right next to the blue, silver and white flower bouquet that flanked the alter on my wedding day some 18+ years ago. Silk flowers are forever!
