Do you remember these? They're the Posh Inkabilities that Ranger makes *or used to make*. I haven't seen these around in a long time. They were specifically made to use with that compressed sponge in the photo above. Dee Gruenig used them a lot.
I have all of the Alcohol Inks (you saw them in an earlier post that Renee labeled for me!), but I thought I would try these Posh Inks to make the plaid paper for this tag instead. I've had these waaaaay longer than my Alcohol Inks, so why not use them?
I didn't wait for the paint to dry before I went the other way with the sponge on these to get the plaid look, but I kinda like the effect. Next time I do this though, I'll have a little more patience *smiles*
So here are the tags I made . . .
I took a piece of the leftover plaid and stamped the "star light star bright" message on the back, added a little color to it and then using some Glossy Accents attached it to an acrylic fragment. What's nice is that the back of the tag is already "finished".
I added some snaps on the four corners . . .
Here's the first Tag #3 . . .
On the next Tag #3 I used a different tree stamp (same one I used on Tag #6 in the car). The tree stamp doesn't have a trunk, so I used a "love" stamp sideways to make one
Stamped some snowflakes and added some Platinum Stickles Glitter Glue (duh!) to the snowflakes and the tree
Cut two strips from the striped paper and added to the top and bottom of the piece
The fibers I used were the PERFECT colors! I was gifted these from my friend Linda Forrest awhile back. Thanks Linda!
PS The reindeer I used on Tag #11 was picked up at one of the Sugar Plum festivals, but I'm sure you can find something similar at your local craft and hobby store in the ornament section. This one just worked out so well because it was fairly flat and I could glue it down.
Back to Tag #12 - started on it last night. Can you tell I'm having fun so far on my staycation at home? *insert big smiles here*
