Seam Binding Technique with Jan

Hello Quick Quotes fans!  Jan here today to host the blog with you.

Today I’ll share a few easy ways to coordinate your embellishments.  I always like to use seam binding to make shabby bows, and the Powder Puff Chalking Inks work so well!  I start with white seam binding and choose the color of ink I’d like.  

Then run the seam binding across the ink.  In the palm of your hand, wad up the inked binding and using a water mist bottle, mist the binding and rub it around in your palms.  So easy and you get a custom made embellishment, too. 

On my framed art, I used Amaretto on a couple of the flowers, the shabby bow and the frames edges. Mango Mai Tai was used on the larger flower and then misted with water.

Here’s a peek at some seam binding that has been inked with Powder Puff Chalking Ink.  I’ve used Baja BluePurple Passion, and Bloody Mary.
