RAIDANT RAIN DAUBERS - Techniques by Alison Callcott

Here is an idea and sample from Alison Callcott using the Raidant Rain Daubers.

I love these daubers how they can be used in so many ways with very little mess if you want to.

Here is Alison Callcotts card sample using karen's 'embellish this and create it' challenge
Material list..

* Radiant Rain Dauber - Snapdragon

* Big Shot Circles die

* Aqualip purple pen and Inkssentials white opaque pen

* SU purple cardstock, generic white cardstock

* white beaded crocheted flowers

* white denim, white tulle, white mini ric rac, and white felt

* a doily

* corner rounder punch


Step 1
If you have some tue, felt, ric rac that doesn't match the colour you want than you can use the Raidant Rain Daubers to die to the colour that you desire.

Alison didn't didn't have the purple colour in OZEDIES she wanted to colour her items so she decided to due with the Raidant Rain Daubers instead and decided to use the snapdragon Radiant Rain Dauber.

Step 2
Shack the Dauber until the ball was moving freely, then
shack it some more LOL!

Step 3
Then poured some of the liquid into a plastic container and dipped my items into the liquid, ensuring that I swirled them around to get the shimmer effect happening as the shimmer sediment settled straight to the bottom of the container.

Step 4
Where possible, squeezed the excess liquid out of the items. Then dyed before placing them on an old towel to dry.

Step 5
Once the items were finished dyeing. The liquid was sirled again and then simply poured it back into the Dauber bottle.

It is awesome and I thank you Alison for sharing this with us

luv tanXx
