Re-facing Lace & Trims

Lace comes in so many varieties, textures, and colors. It makes an awesome accent on Scrapbook pages, cards and altered objects, and is a great way to soften a project, or frill it up.

Flamingo has a yummy selection of cotton laces and trims. Use your Glimmer Mists, Maya Mists, and Distress Inks to recolor them to match your projects. Once you heat set them, the color will stay forever.

This White Venice Lace Galloon Rosebuds from Cheep Trims is available in the store.

By using a paint brush with Hula Hoop & Pink Taffy Glimmer Mists, I had more control of the color, and created a total different look.

Synthetic trim and lace can also be recolored with alcohol inks or staz-ons.   Check back tomorrow for not one but two posts; Sara's first Guest Design Team post and a fun blog hop - we can't wait!
