A little birdie told me...


it's time for Tag #4! hehehehe
Today was working with Alcohol Inks and Clear Embellishments - specifically, as with Tim's tag, his cool looking facets. Well, I only have one of those babies left here for sale in the studio so I thought I'd better leave it. BUT I did have some left over extra acrylic pieces from Darcie's charm line from a class I taught at ScrapFest ... I thought they'd work perfectly!! And they did!

I took out my trusty Postcard Stamp and used it to stamp the background -- now, I know some of you out there covet this stamp. You'll be thrilled to know that I now have a fabulous post card stamp by Unity now in stock!! I know, you'll thank me later *big Grin*.

Getting back to the tag...... I inked it up using the same base technique as yesterday's tag BUT this time, as I wanted it to take on a speckled egg feeling, I made a Black Wash with some black dabber paint and water and "flicked" it on the tag. LOVE how that looks. The rest of the stamps? Character Constructions, of course!! I've been just dying to use these stamps and now, thank you Tim, I'm getting an excuse. Love the photographic quality of those stamps.

Anyway, hope you like it! Thanks for stopping by and for all your comments. I love reading them!
