It's the end of February already the mornings are starting to get nice and bright here, which always makes me feel better and we have a new challenge starting on the blog soon I am looking forward to seeing all the entries.
I have a tag to share with you all today created using Distress Inks, a mask, and stamps from The Artistic Stamper.
1- Apply a thick layer of gel medium through a stencil on one corner of the tag, this will take a while to dry.
2- Apply a thinner scrapping of gel medium through the same mask in a small area on the opposite corner of the tag.
3- Spread three colours of Distress ink onto a glass mat, spritz with water and push the tag into the ink, dry between layers,
4- Use a brush to help apply ink over the thick gel medium and continue layering until happy with the result.
5- Using a wet wipe or damp cloth remove the ink from the gel medium.
6- Using one of the inks from the first layer apply more ink through the same mask in two or three areas.
7- Stamp over the top of the tag with one or two different background stamps for added interest.
8- Stamp a focal image in the bottom corner and the top of the tag using archival ink. I have used a butterfly stamp designed by Neil Walker, ensure the image is overhanging the tag.
9- Wipe off any ink from the gel medium.
