Hello Everyone and welcome!
Jennie here with you for our weekly Destinations Inspirations journey and today you are at Terminal #3. We have enjoyed fabulous projects from Jenny and Amanda already this month and now it is my turn to share my creation using the contents of this month's travel bag which are:
Product : Archival Ink
Technique : Stamping
Colour : Dusty Concord
Substrate : Acrylic/Clear Packaging/Acetate
I am afraid that my packaging tag is not very easy to photograph and with the dull weather we have had just lately nigh on impossible!
I started with my piece of plastic packaging and cut a tag with it and then ran it through the Big Shot with one of my favourite embossing folders.
For my stamping technique I went back to a technique we did with Tim on Creative Chemistry 101 : Archival Resist.
I used Hydrangea Archival Ink to stamp onto Ranger Glossy Card.
When this was dry (and it takes a little while) I blended Dusty Concord Distress Ink over the top. The Archival Ink acts as a resist and all you need to do is wipe away the excess Distress Ink with a soft cloth to reveal the resist.
I wasn't too happy with the dark colour so I gave everything a spritz of water and got the softer look I was looking for.
I did the same with another piece of glossy paper this time stamping in Venetian Orange Archival Ink. These provided a little contrast to the original piece.
I then layered my embellishments onto the clear tag. The tag was a little short as I was limited by the size of the packaging, so I added a die cut pediment inked and (lightly) overstamped with Dusty Concord. I wasn't too sure whether all the colours would work together but I quite like the pop of orange!
I stamped a little banner on glossy card using Dusty Concord Distress Ink and die cut a reinforcer from some of the scrap pieces left over.
And the finished tag again which if I can work out a way of covering the bits that show at the back will be a birthday card for a favourite aunt. I like to send something other than a card now and then and as a crafter it is much appreciated.
Thank you for stopping off at Terminal 3 and joining me today and do pop back next week as another Creative Guide will be waiting for you at the next Terminal with another project using the same items in the travel bag.
And of course, don't forget our fabulous challenge this month which is
The challenge is open until the end of the month and we would love to see your projects inspired by this wonderful theme.
Have a great crafting week!
