Tim does such an amazing job with Ranger inks, I had so much fun trying his techniques. For my first tag, I stamped the moon using acrylic paint first. Let it dry and then heavily mist with a combination of Distress reinker/perfect pearls/water. I used 3 different combinations here. Fired Brick/Copper, Dried Marigold/Gold & Walnut Stain/Perfect Bronze. Use a heat tool to "move" the colors around a bit and dry the tag. After dry, stamp main images using Adirondack Black Pitch pigment ink and embellish.
Here's a sneak peek of Tim's April Technique. My tutorial is here.
