Hello my friends!
I had some fun the other evening creating some backgrounds for some more tags. I love playing around with different techniques which is why I always seem to be creating backgrounds for future art projects. It's just fun! This time I pulled out my original distress inks. I squished them down on my craft mat, spritzed them with water and pressed and swiped my tags through the inky goodness. I dried each layer and then dunked it again, adding more ink or water as necessary. I like a little shimmer and thought I'd pull out some Heidi Swapp Color Shine gold spray to mix in with my distress inks and I love the marbling effect it created.
This one actually has no distress ink in it, it is Gold and turquoise Color Shine spray, but done the same way. I sprayed it onto the mat and added water and smooshed the tag into it!
I heat embossed a couple of tags to create a resist before inking them up for a different effect.
I just love how the gold marbled through the distress ink!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
