It is double tag day today in one post, so let's get started with Tim's Tag #5. He showed a really cool technique with alcohol inks and stamping resist technique. The typography in white s actually the negative of the stamp when the stamp ink reacts with the alcohol ink.
I do have one set of alcohol inks and luckily there was a red pepper colour in it. I alcohol inked an acetate tag (cut our from transparency paper you get from Staples) about 5 thin layers to achieve a rich red. I did not have Ranger's archival ink and after 3 attempts with the other ink brands...the stamp resist technique just didn't work at all. On to plan B. Using the red tag base I added 4 panels cut from Hambly screen paper to mimic a front door. I added a little girl holding the stocking and the word JOY cut from metal paper.
Today is Tim's Christmas Tag #6. He embossed foil paper...really neat vintage look:
Here is my take on Tag #6:
I used a cuttlebug Christmas embossing folder on Quickutz metal paper. Instead of painting, I used my copic markers to colour just the raised lettering. I used 2 stamps from Tim's Mini Christmas stamp set on the top and bottom of the tag. There wasn't room for a wreath so I tied a bow using three different strands of bakers twine.
