Retake on Thinking Inking Week 1 - Continued just for fun

Week one of Thinking Inking covered Distress Inks.  I wanted more play time so I made a few more tags just for fun.

Rubber Stamps : Stampendous (Pua Tapa border) , Sarasota Stamps (Hi - Florida Palm), Stampabilities   (Paradise postage), Viva Las Vegastamps (water skier)
Distress Inks : Tumbled Glass and Weathered Wood
Versafine : Onyx black
Archival : black (lighter skier, that ink pad was a little dry so I switched to Versafine for the others) 
Perfect Pearls : turquoise

Technique : 
  • First two tags left to right - inked up a craft sheet with tumbled glass distress ink, sprinkled with a little perfect pearls, spritzed with water and then mopped the color up with the tag.  Third tag - applied ink with a blending sponge.
  • Stamped border with distress ink.
  • Stamped water skier with black ink.
  • Used a marker to color just a portion of the Florida Palm stamp.
  • Paradise postage stamped with Weathered Wood distress ink.
I sent one tag along with my bubble girl swap tag.  I sent another tag with a little package in thanks for a gift certificate I won.  I'm putting the last tag with my collection of Technique tags.  Thanks for visiting!

These are so fun! Makes me want more excuses for tags than gifts and labeling boxes!
