See? It turned out awesome!
I also saw one made with paper clips, but I cannot find it where it was. I reasoned, that if I use thick crafting wire (which was thicker than paper clips), then I could create a shape - any shape and get equally great results.
I had my heart set on ginkgo leaves. It was fairly easy to shape the wire. I made a few in different sizes, I even made sure they were flat. I prepared everything, arranged the leaves with a few additional wire details, took it out in the sun and waited.
The linen fabric I used was turning a beautiful shade of orange.
But when I removed the wire ginkgo leaves....nothing. Not a single line. Seriously, I could not even find a faint line. Just orange.
Well,I still have some blue and red Inkodye left...I may just go get white quilting cotton and try again. With safety pins. Because I know that will work.
