This week at Dragons Dream TIO it's Sue's turn to provide a recipe and it is
- “To Dye for” -;Make a tag and use spray ink, die cut(s) and embossing (heat or dry) and use at least one real stamp.
My tag was a bit of a disaster to make, I had it all planned but it didn't turn out as it should.
First I made the background for which I used my DIY spray ink (mixed watercolour paint with water in a spraybottle) and so far it worked out great, I really liked how the background turned out. Then the problems started.
I stamped the Time Traveler using black Stazon and when I removed the stamp from the tag some of the spray ink flaked off the tag and the stamped image was not clear. That was the first problem.....
But I solved this by stamping the image again on vellum, cut the image out and glued it on the tag(over the failed stamped image) then stamped and heat embossed the words Time Traveller.
The tag still needed something extra, so I masked the Time Traveler and stamped the clocks using white Stazon and had the same problem...... the Stazon and my DIY spray ink didn't like each other and when I removed my stamp the spray ink flaked off the tag and the stamped image was not clear. To make the image more visible I used white embossing powder and I liked the result.
Now I only had to add some die cuts and decided to use the TH Gadget Gears and cut them out off metal tape covered cardstock. Because of the mettalic look of the gears I thought the tag had a futuristic feel about it and I thought it would be fun to put some glitter glue around the edges.......you can probably guess what happened......... the glue didn't want to come out of the bottle so I had to squeeze it a bit harder.......then the nozzle came off and half of the glitter glue bursted out of the bottle on to the tag............
Luckely I could remove the most of the glitter from the tag. Instead of ribbon I used wire to finish the tag and attached a light bulb to the wire.
Here it is..... drumroll......
Hope you like and come and join the challenge
I will enter these tag in the following challenges:
