So here is where these ingredients have taken me, on this journey at Terminal 4...
I couldn't resist playing with Halloween , and I love this Tim Holtz skull - I am eagerly awaiting the arrival of the new one out... So here is what I did .. I decided to create a layered tag...something I love to do as you have lots of room to create detail and yummy layers of Tim yumminess.
The large tag was for the base layer, I used alcohol ink card for my ombre and some foil tape added to a smaller tag #8 for the middle layer.
I added some colours of alcohol ink to a test piece before following Tim's instructions in Compendium as in ingredients to create my ombre effect..
I had torn the paper which ended up allowing the ink to soak into card giving a dark stripe but I quite liked it...
Again using the alcohol ink ..and for the foil tape part, I covered the smaller tag and embossed using damask texture fade, I then applied some butterscotch and also slate inks to the surface .
I then rubbed the surface with black soot paint dabber, and left for a few seconds before rubbing away some of it (sorry forgot the photo!)
Now to grunge up the ombre piece, I took out my trusty sanding grip and lightly sanded some areas..
And then applied some walnut stain distress ink which highlights the scuffed areas
For the large tag I coloured the tag using fossilized amber distress ink, which matched the butterscotch colour of the alcohol ink..and then applied some hickory smoke through this fab gothic layering stencil in small areas
To complete the base tag I scuffed edges, added some of the new and old tissue tape for Halloween and inked edges.
I then added the foil covered tag ..and more tissue tape..I love builidng up my layers ..
I added some rub ons...you need to make sure the distress ink is completely dry...and this takes a while or heat dry..
I stamped the skull, in jet black archival onto the ombre panel and added to the top of all those layers..
I comleted the tag with some dyed seam binding..
And here is the completed tag...my destination for terminal 4
Well hope you like my make for today,
keep those fingers inky!
