We no longer have an ink jet printer (we have a laser), but I couldn't let go of the leftover ink jet window cling sheets we've had in our craft stash forever. So I experimented a little.
I knew it would work well with some of the dies I have for my Vagabond, but without color, why bother?
I thought about using permanent ink pads to stamp on it, but it wasn't practical, I only have black. (All the other colors I have are not permanent.) So I ended up pulling out my collection of colored Sharpies and scribbled on a piece to see if it was indeed permanent on this type of surface. It totally was!
So I scribbled a couple of more colors (lightest to darkest) on that piece and ran it through my Vagabond using a butterfly die. It's far from the great look a printer would lend, but it turned out better than I expected. Even the little hearts that punch out of the butterfly are pretty.
Next I used a bow die. It's officially adorable.
I'm looking forward to trying out other dies and colors.
In the end I would call this experiment of mine a success! Have you ever tried anything like this? I'd love to see the results!
Thank you for taking the time to stop by! I post things I craft or make in the kitchen and sometimes talk about my family. I'm the mom of identical twin daughters who are all grown up now, and I've been married for almost 40 years. My life isn't very exciting, but I like it that way. Whether you are a subscriber or not, I hope I've shared something you can relate to and feel at home here in my little house out back.
