Ombre Tag Art

May 5th, 2015 § 0 comments § permalink

Design Teamer, Shirley Karnos, creates a unique photo layout she calls Ombre Art. She starts with our basic (yet super versatile!) White Tags then, dips them in various colors of Rit dye to make dip-dyed ombre tags.  All were cut into triangles and pieced together to create a geometric heart layout. The lovely shades of pink, blue and lavender make a perfectly coordinated display. This could be the base to a card, a scrapbook page or a wall hanging to commemorate a special occasion.  She’s chosen a heart for her anniversary theme but other shapes would work as well. Let creativity be your guide!

Shirley, is currelntly working on a dip-dyed project using our white Little Bitty Bags. Stay tuned … that should be a fun one!
