Ink yourself silly: Tag

I hear you from here.. a Christmas tag?? again??
Let me explain... you know that we work ahead of time behind the scene and the DT worked on this week's projects end of November/beginning of December...
So Isa looked at the theme (inks), and 100% in the Christmas spirit at the time, she made a .... xmas tag.. only to realise afterwards it was for a January post. She offered to make another one, but I said no... First of all, it's beautiful and I really wanted to share it with you but also.. who cares? We can start xmas 2012 early, can't we? ok... maybe not, but I'm sure that you can use the technique/ suggestion on other tags, card or scrapbook project. 
No particular technique actually, but Isa wanted to show the effect of the beautiful Brilliance inks, especially on a dark or black card.... What do you think?

Tip of the day
Although it is a pigment based, Brilliance inks can be used (and will dry) on shrink plastic. 
There is a lot of choice of colours in this range, with some of the inks (like the one Isa used) being pearlescent and giving a lovely shimmery effect. 

Isabelle used:

BRILLANCE inks: platinum planet, gold
KATZELKRAFT stamps: Noel, Trees
Sizzix Tim Holtz dies: Tag, Frame & pendant


  1. Stunning tag! Glad you showed it.

  2. Wow, that is one gorgeous tag! xx

  3. I'd forgotten how fab Brilliance ink is on dark card. Lovely tag which beautifully shows how lovely and underused Brilliance inks are. I must use them again sometime soon.

  4. Very beautiful and interesting, as I didn't know exactly the effect of Brilliance inks... Thank you !

  5. Fabulous tag. I have some brilliance inks but don't use them much. Thank you for yet another idea! xx

  6. Love this beautiful tag, it is so elegant.

  7. Superbe. J'aime vraiment beaucoup.

  8. That is so beautiful!!! I have a whole set of Brilliance inkpads & I really must use them on more projects this year.

  9. What a fab tag .....glad Christmas is over now though ! X

  10. Sublime ce tag,
    Gros bisous

  11. Gorgeous tag! Love the effect of the ink on black!
    BTW-As a procrastinator who is always finishing tags and cards at the last minute on Christmas Eve, maybe I need to start in January to be finished on time! So glad she shared this one!

  12. love your tag Isa and the fiber add to a beautiful finishing touch
