New England Stamper: Button Tags

November 11, 2009

Button Tags

The Spicy Supply Challenge over at Gingersnaps today is buttons.  Here are a few tag/distress ink projects I came up with for the challenge.

On the first tag I sponged on Peeled Paint and Faded Jeans ink with the blending tool and gave it a light spritz of water.  I applied a mask and blended in some more ink.  And finished the tag base with a spritz of perfect pearls mixed with water.  The bird and sentiment are a transparency that I adhered with the button.

Spread your wings

The images on the next two tags were clear embossed before applying Distress Inks with the blending tool.  After a spritz of Perfect Pearls and water, I ironed off the clear embossing powder and added a little more ink to tone down the images.  The vintage bone buttons were adhered with Art Gel.

This tag uses a stamp from Artistic Outpost with Faded Jeans and Weathered Wood Distress inks.

Blue Serenity

This tag uses an image from Stampers Anonymous with Fired Brick and Spiced Marmalade Distress inks.

Golden chimes tag

Don't forget to check out the other Gingersnap Creations Design Team projects on the blog - they are awesome!

Ali, all 3 of the button tags are so gorgeous. I'd hate to pick just one as a favorite. The colors are beautiful.

WOW, Ali, these are fantastic!!! I will definitely have to try some of these techniques (layering the acetate image, and ironing off the clear embossing). Fabulous, TFS!

Beautiful results. I'm just enlarging my Distress Inks I have on hand. Awesome job. I'm going to try this with the Tim Holtz stamps I bought from you.
