Tag 7

I love todays tag, I really do! All kinds of surfaces, different kinds of using ink, different inks, a little embossing, a bit of paint dabber snowcap. There are too many details to name them all. Let's just take a look at Tim's tag 7. Isn't it a beauty?
As usual I found some substitutes for the products he is using. For instance: Kraft glassine. It looks like a fantastic product to work with but what could be a reasonable substitute if you don't have it right now? Well, since I had seen craft glassine for the first time, I wanted to try some parchment paper for baking. It's has some of the same properties as glassine: smooth surface and folds stay visible when it's crumpled. Here is my take on tag 7:
I found that the parchment paper for baking is much thinner and won't stay in shape. Blèh! It was also very hard to get some color on it with alcohol inks. Next time I'm at my LSS I'll get some craft glassine paper, I promise! But in the meantime it is a more or less reasonable substitute. Here are some details for you to enjoy:
Sentiment from Hero Arts Happy Holiday Trees set. Embossed in black and snow on top made with white enamel accents.
I just knew these silver colored beads would come in handy someday. I must have had them for years! I colored them with alcohol ink red pepper in a plastic bag. Just like Tim explains on his blog.
Elegant flourishes cut out of grungepaper and colored gold with alcohol ink gold. I sanded them a bit and used frayed burlap to cover the patches. instand tarnished gold! A bit of paint dabber snowcap and white enamel accents resemble the snow.
Thank you for visiting. Have fun with todays tag!

even the littlest comment is greatly appreciated!
