Over at Studio L3 the lovely Linda took us right back to 2009 and Day 3 of the 12 Tags of Christmas. The technique was to make Tartan paper using Alcohol Inks. Despite my love of Alcohol Inks and all things Scottish it has taken me until now to actually try this technique. So here it is....
Wow. Look at that sunlight comng through the window onto the tag! I thought about moving the tag, but love the sunlight!
Here is a better shot with no shading from the sun. You can now see the embellishments of a Dragonfly and two very small jingly bells. The ribbon is silk which I have coloured using Distress Stains. Gotta love the Distress Stains for this.
I mounted the coloured paper onto a tag after first stamping with some lovely Tim Holtz stamps, the sentiment is one of my favourites. I have a scrapbook layout in mind to use this tag as an embellishment on. It is of my friend and I with our Flora McDonald costumes on at the Burn's Night Dinner last year so maybe you will see the tag make an appearance soon.
I understand that Linda will be stopping the Grungy Monday Challenges now to make way for the Compendium Challenges II. Looking forward to those especially as I already have my book! Why not join us.
