Funky Fossil Designs "Tie Dye Stencil" Good Luck Card

A young man that we have watched grow from a baby, goes off to university this week.  Huge changes ahead for not just this lovely boy but also his family too, who will miss him so much. As I couldn't sleep, I decided to get up and make a card for him.

I started by blending colours for the background, starting in the middle and working outwards using the following Distress Oxide Ink colours: Squeezed Lemonade, Wild Honey and Carved Pumpkin. I gave it a blast of the heat gun to dry off the ink.

I then taped the Funky Fossil Designs "Tie Dye Stencil" over the top and used a further two shades of Distress Oxide Ink, using Villainous Potion in the middle and then Wilted Violet out towards the edges.

I decided the image needed something else, so I edged the pattern area using a gold shimmer Gelly Roll Pen, which added an extra dimension.

I stamped the sentiment, part of the Stampers Anonymous "Saying Stuff" clear stamp set in Versafine Clair "Monarch" purple ink.


  1. This takes me back Sam, had a few tie dye t-shirts, a beautiful group fading colour combo

  2. What a great card for this young man off to university and the colours of this tie die design are beautiful...a wonderful good luck card and very much appreciated I'm sure. x

    1. Thanks Pat. Do you know what, there was absolutely no mention of the card, but I did receive thanks for the money that was inside it. Kids eh!
