More Love to Share

Our talented designer Ranjini found a creative way to use her Jenni Bowlin for Ranger Acrylic Paint Dabbers.  Using her stash of needlework fabric she explains her process:

" I simply cut the heart shape using pinking shears and then covered the fabric hearts with the dabber paints in Cough Syrup and Chewing Gum. Allow the paint to dry completely. If you're impatient like me, you can use your heat gun to speed drying. If the heart curls up or warps, you can iron it flat (on the side without the paint, on a low setting very quickly - don't apply too much heat and don't iron for too long. Then attach the heart to your card base. If you like, you can stamp a sentiment on the heart.  Add a few Stick Pins, Label Stickers, seam binding and vintage buttons and you're done - simple and lovely valentines."

What a sweet technique! Thanks for the inspiration Ranjini!
