Cut N Dry technique

What have we done to deserve this awful weather, oh well we can always get crafting.

I have been having a little play with cut and dry felt. I added the picture just in case you have forgot what it looks like and you know you have some somewhere.

Firstly stamp onto the cut & dry felt using Archival Ink or Versafine. The stamp is Lynne Perrella 012.

Then colour in using Distress Reinkers.....

It does not matter that it blends into the other colours....

Hope you can see the effect you can get...

I also used a different smaller stamp to get a variety of colour on the same cut & dry felt.

Then pop it in a ziploc or similar bag for a rainy day. If it does dry slightly you can use Ink Refresher to  moisten it again.

Next I painted a tag and sponged more paint through a stencil.

Then added the cut out picture I had stamped.

This idea works really nice with flowers and butterflies as well, where you want lots of colour.

Hope you enjoyed this and maybe have a go yourself.

Well it's just about time for our walkies before the rain starts again, so by for now and I shall be back soon.



  1. Love the effect you achieved but what happens between adding re-inker and it appearing on the card? Do you put the stamp on the felt or vice versa? I know that may be a dumb question but I've NEVER used this stuff before!

  2. Hi Julia,
    You put the stamp on to the felt and because the ink travels a bit you do not have to be spot on. So as long as the stamp lands onto a section thats been inked you will get some colour.
    Have fun
