I have been spending a lot of time recently
looking at pretty pictures and videos “researching” mixed media and distress ink techniques. 🙂 My purchases lately have been sprays, stencils, paints etc. so that I could try some of the techniques. I’ve been attempting tags and I must tell you that I went through quite a few before coming up with one which I was even a little pleased with.
I wish you could see this tag in real life, it has such a pretty sheen to it which unfortunately doesn’t show up in the photos.
I’ve used distress inks, perfect pearls (which I’ve had in my stash for years and never used – now I’m wondering why I haven’t used them before), embossing powder for the sentiment and die-cut stars.
I’m trying to show you the sheen but it is difficult to get the overall effect.
I’ve had a lot of fun with this but if I do another, and I’m sure I will, there are things I would definitely change. The sentiment colour for one.
Bye for now,
