Tags for Day 3

Wow! These were so much fun to make! And I didn't have to buy a thing, I already have most of the Tim Holtz ink lines!! Wish you could really see these. The outside ones are done on glossy cardstock. I had it but I didn't know what to do with it before! You can bet I will be using it lots more. Also all the stamping (image part) was done with Archival ink. I used it for everything when I first started stamping and got away from it because the clean up was so hard. Well, Tim says he doesn't use anything but a cloth and sometimes water. I can do that! Sure makes me want to stamp with archival all the time. It gives such a wonderful image. The tag in the middle is embossed with an embossing folder. I didn't have one that had a lot of blank space so I used what I had. Didn't like what happened to it so I started stamping after the fact and I just love it! If you can zoom up on the cards, you will see lots of details. The two outside ones are done mostly with alcohol inks - not copics but the Tim Holtz line. I am sure copics would work if you wanted to use the various (refillers) and the blender. Since they aren't really made with that kind of use in mind, I wouldn't expect too much if you try it. I have lots of Tim's inks - lots!!! So lets see what tomorrow brings. The next birthday card won't be posted until next week since I don't have it made. Hugs to you all! Hope you enjoy the tags. I won't post them to my groups since I don't think that is right. Barb F
