Bloghome of a crafter and artist exploring new craft tools and techniques.
Working on the goody bag tags for my sons Pirate themed party was fun but I still needed fuelling with coffee. Something about those earthy brown tones all look so good together. I really enjoyed using my new Adirondack ink applicator for the first time with the Tim Holtz distress ink pad. I applied it around the edges of these stylish Craft tags by Ranger in sweeping circular motions and just kept reworking and buffing the ink a little while it was still damp to spread it a little further and blend to soften the effect. You want a kind of vignette effect tapering off towards the centre. See my future post to see how it looks when you write on them.
