Stained Floss Card

So, I was watching the videos from Papertrey Ink's Stamp-A-Faire, and thought the staining techniques looked fun. I wanted to stain some floss in a bright color, so I decided to use mist instead of tea of kool aid to get a great green color =)

I dyed two pieces of floss, one white floss and one blue floss, with the same green stain made up from green mist and water. I dried them, and then used the technique I showed in this video, to pierce holes using a Papertrey die. I stitched with the one color of dyed floss, and then switched to the second color. I did not back stitch on this one, but instead I used a regular up and down stitch to incorporate both floss colors =)
