Tea Dyed Doilies Tutorial | Bo Bunny

Hi all! As I mentioned yesterday, I created a tutorial for the Bo Bunny blog. In case you didn't see it on the Bo Bunny blog yesterday, I thought I would share the Doily Tutorial on my blog today. I used a combination of Ranger Distress Stains to create a wonderful vintage, tea dyed look on the new Bo Bunny Doilies. Also, they are having a giveaway for a one year subscription to Scrapbook Trends just for becoming a follower and leaving a comment on the blog post HERE. Make sure you hop over there and check it out!!!

The supplies you will need are Bo Bunny Doilies, Ranger Distress Stain in Picket Fence, Vintage Photo and Old Paper. You will also need a craft mat, spray water bottle and a heat tool.

Begin by dabbing the ink onto your craft mat.

Then spritz it with water using your spray bottle.

Take your finger and run it through the ink to mix it all together.

Take your doily and mist it lightly with water.

Next drag your doily through the ink.

The doily will be rather wet.

Use your heat tool to dry the doily.

Drag and smoosh your doily into the remaining ink on your craft mat.

Dry the doily again.

Add more ink to your mat. Do not use Picket Fence or water this time.

Drag your doily through the ink again.

Dry it again. Now you have your distressed tea/coffee stained doily.

And here is the layout I used my doily on...
