I forgot all my laundry lessons (both Mom’s and my Home Ec Teacher’s) and washed some teal blue towels along with my other towels. I forgot to put in a color magnet and also forgot that new, dark colored towels would bleed. It’s like a law.
At least they weren’t red! I’ve done that!! I liked the new colors so much, I did a second load with the rest of these towels. I wonder how long the excess dye will last – can I do another load?
The teal turned the white towels a lovely tint of aqua! It’s close to Stampin’ Up!®’s Pool Party. The other towels were a Sea Foam green – now they’re a Sea Foam blue-green, a tint of Lost Lagoon! The new towels are almost exactly the same color as the retired Taken With Teal, one of the base colors in my banner and logos. You can print pages of retired colors using My Digital Studio (#130647, Disc; #130646, Download), by the way, so the retired colors aren’t really gone!
This combination is inspiring me to create a summery card using Pool Party and Lost Lagoon. I might also do a digital design using Taken With Teal along with them. I will post them here in a few days, so check back!
