Inky beginnings

Hi, its Carol with you today - have you seen the fabulous new Ranger products that have arrived at Papermaze? I haven't managed to get my hands on those new Dylusion ink sprays yet, but, I will!!, so I thought today, we'd use some of the sprays and distress inks…to make a tag incorporating several techniques…

To start with I cut a tag using the sizzix large tag die, this is now available in the shop, I have had my die for quite some time and I use it a lot! I love making tags and enjoy adding these as decoration to presents for family and friends….so,  tag cut….I used a clear embossing ink with clear powder and stamped and heat embossed some sewing themed stamps to my tag….. I then used my spraying cubicle (a delivery box from Papermaze - with a piece of kitchen roll in the bottom) to spritz my tag - I always do this after spraying my new wooden blinds!!!! fortunately it did clean off, but, I'm not chancing that again!! lol


This tag was spritzed with three inks, dried and spritzed again - the picture shows the first spritz…..
I also cut the mannequin die out of grungepaper and spritzed this with the same inks, I added the white spray ink, lifted up the mannequin and allowed the ink to run down the leg….
Taking a harlequin stencil, I placed this over the tag and spritzed with water, text stamping with black ink and the edges inked with brown ink finished off the tag….

I also coloured some vintage ribbon with the inks…

The bobbin was coloured using distress inks and a piece of string wrapped around, a vintage button and a pin were also added.  The stamped sentiment was from a Technqiue Tuesday stamp set….
