Lets Get Inky at Try it on Tuesdays
Its time for a new challenge at Try it on Tuesdays and this time its 'Inky'.
I don't know about you, but I love playing with inks and just seeing where it take me, and this tag was no different. I started with a white tag and used Tim's Marbled Stains technique, using Iced Spruce and Picket Fence and because I don't as yet have the Metallic stains I used a few sprays of Perfect Pearls which gave a gorgeous simmer in places. I then started stamping the snowflake, first with Picket Fence, then Silver Paint Dabber, followed by PaperArtsy Snowflake Fresco Finish. Silver homemade Frantage for a sparkly border.
The next layer is Vellum, again stamped with the snowflake, first in Iced Spruce then Snowflake Fresco. This was then put through a crimper, before adding silver embossing. To give depth, I used an ink duster on the reverse, first with Evergreen Bough and then Festive Berries. The main image is Inkadinkado, stamped on white card, coloured with DIs and Stickles, and again a silver embossed border. The fivers were stained with Festive Berries and Evergreen Bough - you should have seen my hands - must remember to wear rubber gloves!!
I hope you will join us and show us your inkyness and if you need any inspiration, please pop over here to sew the rest of the DT's inky offerings.
Again a scheduled post - I hope everyone is well and safe.
