I spent Friday last week sorting out my Dabbers, some were ok, some were very thick and needed water, some were dried up completely! I used the end of a paint brush to stir the ones I could and being a bit thrifty I wiped the paint onto card then swooshed over it with an old credit card and made some pretty grungy backgrounds!
The finished results are further on into the post (the second part I think).
This tag and pocket was inspired by the man himself Tim Holtz! On his blog he said that ink only dries on glassine if you heat set it and something special happens (I'll not spoil it for anyone who hasn't seen it yet)!
Well I tried it and this is what I made!
This is the tag inside the pocket, cream card swooshed with distress ink stain vintage photo and tumbled glass, the white is gesso swooshed on with a credit card and overstamped with a TH stamp and lots of flowers (sprayed with cosmic shimmers) ribbon (coloured with distress stains and screwed up and dried) and a mulitude of beads! The blue bead at the top of the tag is stamped with a little bird from a Crafty Individuals stamp.
