An experiment with Tim Holtz

I decided to do a quick experiment today and realized that we did not have any glossy paper in stock. We ran out during the Tim Holtz 12 Tags of Christmas and it has not been restocked yet.

So instead I took one of our white tags which has a smoother surface and I pounced alcohol inks all over the background. It was harder to move and manipulate the inks as the surface was not as slick as the glossy paper.

When it was dry, I used Versamark and one of the 2012 Hero Arts stamps and stamped the Gear Images on the tag. I then took Perfect Pearls and mixed it with embossing powder to make my custom color which has a gleam to it. Using the heat tool I embossed the image.

Here is a close up view

The background is quite intriguing.
I had to stop at this point as a customer needed some help.
I hope to finish up this tag tomorrow.
Till then, Goodnight
