Easy "Dye" Lace

I love all the laces and fun trims on the market but finding the perfect color…a challenge. Since I got my Copic Markers and started using spray inks, I've been buying everything in neutrals–clear and white. Why buy color when I make my own custom colored embellies?

When it comes to lace, I could use Copics or spray inks to change their color but I don't. Sometimes I don't want to wait for a spray ink to dry and I don't have the air brush for Copics so what to do? One night I was sitting at my scrappy table and figured I'd try using Chalk Inks to color a piece of white lace. It worked really well!

It's as easy as it loks–just rub ink across the lace:

Here's what the lace looks like on the page:

  3. Hi Jennifer! I was thinking about attending this class but I just wanted to clarify the date. On your post, it says April 23, but on your calendar on the left side of your blog, it says April 22. Which is the correct date?

    Love your blog btw! Really inspiring! =)
