12 tags of christmas - day 7

Hi everyone!

It's stormy outside, and today is my day off, so this afternoon I sat down for day 7 of the 12 tags of Christmas. The techniques featured today are kraft glassine with alcohol inks. I must confess that I've ordered alcohol inks the other day, but unfortunately I didn't receive them yet. So I've been experimenting with a little piece of glassine and distress ink, but I didn't like the green. Eventually I used paint dabbers and made different shades of green. Then I wrinkled it up and sanded it and inked the veins with distress. I did the background again with distress ink instead of stains. Then I did go over it a bit more  with a blending tool with the same colors for a bit more effect and also so I could make drops with water. Half way through, I almost wanted to start over, but I'm glad I didn't! It turned out great!
Unfortunately you can't see the glassine through the paint but I'm just glad I finally used it! haha. I also, as Tim said, bought it because I was curious about it, and didn't know what to do with it! LOL. Another first, I used archival ink for embossing. And it works perfectly! Don't have black embossing powder, so that's why I used archival ink and clear embossing powder). The holly is cut with my eCraft machine.

The result:





The materials:
  • Kraft paper, glassine
  • Lace, ribbon, mesh, vintage tinsel
  • Pearls
  • Stamps: Tim Holtz, Prima Marketing
  • Distress Ink: pumice stone, antique linens, old paper, frayed burlap, vintage photo, walnut stain
  • Embossing powder: Clear
  • Archival Ink: Jet Black
Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope to see you tomorrow for another tag!
