Twelve Tags – Day Five

2011TimTag#5Today’s technique from Tim Holtz involves alcohol inks and archival ink.  To be honest, it’s my least favorite technique but I have ’em and I’m determined to play along. That’s the beauty of tags – a small investment to try a technique.

I went with a few shades of purple AIS and used Tim’s large circles stamp.  Sprayed my greenery with green Color Wash and added a strip of tissue tape across the top.  The little ornaments are tiny Basic Grey brads and the big ones on the bottom are from Michael’s.

Hope you have a great week.

Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Ich war schon lange auf der Suche nach Berichten ueber karlen und hatte zu diesem Thema schon unzaehlige Berichte vor Augen. Aber das Suchen scheint mitunter noch lohnenswert. Man sollte wahrscheinlich auch nicht ubedingt gleich allem Erstbesten Glauben schenken. Umso erfreulicher, dass es Seiten wie diese zu finden gibt, die dem Thema scheinbar weitaus informativer gesonnen sind.
