Ink The Pink :O)

Hey Peeps

I altered a tag using Adirondack inks for a change...don't get me wrong, I looove my Distress Inks but the colours are a bit drab and as it was sunny in my room of stash, I felt in a bright mood.

I used yellow to cover the whole tag and then used a little mask from the Tim Holtz range, covering one corner. I used Wild Plum and Sunset Orange to get the bright colours and then removed the mask and chucked some water over the tag...giving it a bit of a splotchy look.




After drying with the heatgun, I set it aside and painted some Grungeboard and Grungepaper with Adirondack Dabbers in a mix of yellow and Wild Plum with a dash of white to dilute the colour. Once this had dried, I used some Tim Holtz stamps, using Versafine to stamp the letters onto the Grungepaper and the bird onto Grungeboard.




Once these were cut out, I attached them to the tag and then tied some ribbon thru the hole in the top. I added a little pin with a metal charm from the Idea-ology range and then used a mixture of orange and pink Distress Stickles to cover the letters.

Thanks for looking :O))

I found a pin on Pinterest of a tag you madee 2010 and fell in love with it; but I had such a hard time finding out who made it and your site. But I did!! I am so happy I now can learn how to make it. I have been making cards/albums for years; but have never made tags and haven't stamped for awhile. I am very excited about this new project and busy gathering my supplies. BTW, if you are interested in which tag I love, here is the link: http://pinterest.com/pin/253609022736898873/

I love your blog and have become a fan!! Thank you for your creativity. Cathy Basinski
