Resist Technique on Tag

Resist Technique on Tag

3 colors of distress ink (I used aged mahogany, Wild Honey, Broken China)
Ink blending tool,  Ink blending foam (Ranger Tim Holtz)
Versamark ink, Archival ink Coffee and Jet Black
Embossing powder Fine detail silver
Tag, Stamps (by tim Holtz)
Heattool,  Craftsheet

Stamp a swirl or decorative stamp on the tag with Versamark ink pad, emboss with Silver Detail embossing powder and heat with heat tool.

With ink blending tool apply the desired colors to the tag. Use circular motions with the blending tool. Start this circular motion on your craftsheet (or white paper) and during that circling motion you go on to the tag!  This will give you a better result with the inking, and you will not get any stripes on it.…

Take a piece of cloth and make it damp with a Mini mister.. and go lightly over the tag. This way you take off the color of the embossed part.


Stamp your image.  I used Archival Coffee and a little bird stamp from Tim Holtz.  Use the rag and mister again as we did in the last step to remove any ink from the silver embossed area.

Stamp Swirls.  I used Aged Mahogany on tag... and repeat cleaning part as above

Stamp the text.  I used Archival Jet Black on to the Tag and repeat the cleaning part as above.

Distress edges of tag. I used the distresser tool from Ranger.  Of course there are many ways to distress your projects. Color the edge of your tag with ink.  I used Vintage Photo.

Finished Tag.
