Today's inspiration pieces where some handmade purses. I was inspired by the colors and squares and went from there. My tag uses a technique that Tim Holtz blogged for his August technique. His Alcohol Resist tutorial is awesome. It was a bit messy and quite tedious and I need to perfect it, but I am happy over all. Images and product are all available from Rubbernecker Stamp Co. Rubbernecker is having a 5 day sale on the new Adirondack pigment pads and reinkers. Be sure to stop by and check out the deals!
The dp is Scrapperdashery and was sponged with Distress inks Tea Dye & Shabby Shutters. The clock background was stamped in Tea Dye. DP is attached to a large shipping tag. Tim did an amazing job on the tutorial as usual, so I am just give you the condensed version of the resist. Create your alcohol inked fragments and let dry. Using Archival Black ink, stamp your image on the alcohol ink side of the fragment and quickly wipe it off. It removes the alcohol ink. Then, glue the fragments to white CS (he used glossy but I missed that detail until it was too late) I need to work more with this technique and experiment with images and ink color combinations that work best. Also, the tiny fragments are really hard to work with. Start with a big fragment for starters. Fibers are Basic Gray and gears & sprockets are Tim Holtz.
