And, the final post of eye candy
All of the tags in this post and the one just below are from the alcohol inks class I took this weekend. Tim had little stickers all printed up of each technique with directions that are on stuck to the back of every one of these tags. It was so wonderful to not have to take notes and just play. The tags in the first eye candy post from yesterday are all distress inks. I really need all 24 distress inks now....ok, well I must admit that I have 14 of them, guess I shouldn't be such a hog!
To answer Barb's question about the cut & dry foam, all but 2 of the tags in the distress inks post are made with it. It was cut to the size of the little felt things you put on the handle tool for alcohol inks and was attached to one of those handles with double sided tape. The velcro was removed first...Tim says we should all have 8 of these ready to go-one for each color family. Well, he gets them for free doesn't he. Anyhow, you tamp it on the inkpad to pick up the color and then set it down on a scratch piece of paper next to your project and start moving it in little circles. Move over to your project, but work fast, so you don't get streaks. Keep moving in circles all around the project. You can then go back with other colors over in or next to it. Clear as mud? A whole 8 x 10 sheet of it was only $5.75, and I can cut enough squares to have one for each of the colors he recommends...pinks & reds, oranges, yellow, greens, blues, purples, light browns, dark browns. You just rub it on a paper towel between color hue changes. And for me I'll have to change the pads around onto my one tool.
