Katzelkraft week: another beautiful tag

As promised yesterday, here's another tag made by Michelle this time.
Michelle used Ranger alcohol inks to make her beautiful background but remember that we also sell the Letraset alcohol inks which come in over 45 (!!) colours. Imagine all the possibilities with such a wide range of colours. 

The background for the tag was a choice of three alcohol inks spotted onto felt on a Ranger applicator. A spot of metalic gold alcohol ink was added and then applied to gloss paper. When the ink has covered the page just add a spot of mixative and apply again to the paper. 
Theres a great tutorial by Tim Holtz HERE 
Then its just a case of stamping your design onto the tag using Archival ink. I've stamped the lace pattern on the left and the dressmakers dummy on the right.
To make the embellishments, I cut the sewing room die out of the shrink plastic and using StazOn stamped the lace across the skirt part of the dummy positioning so the dip in the top of the lace was centered at the waist then stamped the ovalish motif so that it fitted into the dip from the neckline. After doing the same with the bobbin I shrank them with the heat gun after punching a hole with the Crop-a-Dile to hang them.

With a few bits and pieces to decorate from my stash it was ready to go in my cards etc to give with presents. Mmmmm must make a card to go with it so it's a matching gift set! 

I used
Katzelkraft unmounted rubber stamps - Lace
Stampers Anonymous - Tim Holtz: Haberdashery
Ranger Archival Ink pad: Jet Black
Polyshrink : translucent

See you tomorrow
