So now on to the second class that Tim taught on Friday - Exploring The Adirondacks. In this class we also made four tags:
This tag's background is paint resist with distress inks. The bird cage was painted by pouncing the silver metallic paint dabber onto the grungeboard cage.
This is a better look - we just pounced the paint and allowed it to "fluff" as Tim called it and then hit it with the heat gun just to speed up the dry time. Awesome huh.... Makes it look like old metal!
The second tag is emboss resist. The blue panel was black card stock with the text embossed with clear embossing powder. The heart is grungeboard painted black and embossed with clear embossing powder. For this technique it's important that you let the paint dry only until it's not tacky any more - if you allow it to dry too long you won't be able to remove the paint from the embossed area.
This one is some wild colors compliments of Alcohol Inks. The background panel was created by scribbling metallic mixative and alcohol inks on your craft sheet and then drip some blending solution over the inks, place your glossy card stock over the inks and give it a little twist then lift. You can go back pick up more color if needed.
The flourish, butterfly and bead/ribbon are all colored with alcohol inks. What was really interesting is the butterfly and flourish are both grungeboard. By painting the grungeboard with Pearl Paint Dabbers you can make the surface "act" like a glossy cardstock - pretty neat huh... think of the possibilities!
The last tag features one of Tim's new texture fades. They used heating tape (this can be found in your Home Depot or Lowes type stores in the heating section) which is sticky metal tape. The tape was placed on a piece of card stock and then run through the texture fade. We used Alcohol Inks right out of the bottle to color each square. Then we rubbed Jet Black Archival ink over the image and wiped off immediately for the finished look - this removed any color from the raised portions.
This is a better look at the details on this tag.
Mood after second class - still amazed by Tim's brilliance and talent!
Tomorrow the recap of the last class!
