The background tag is made from glossy cardstock decorated with distress inks, water splatters, a little Perfect Pearls splatter and the odd stamp.
Hopefully, Father Christmas is bringing me a melt pot this year (yippee!), but in the meantime, the shrink plastic was shrunk with a heat-tool, then embossed multiple times with clear embossing powder on one side, and decorated by dabbing with Adirondack alcohol inks on the other. A bit more time-consuming than Tim Holtz' method, but just as effective.
"Shrink plastic baubles"
So there I was, inking my embossed baubles, and it reminded me of inking facets and acetate, and I started to wonder whether the archival ink resist technique would work... I stamped a star on the back of a bauble with archival ink, then blotted it with kitchen roll and sure enough, the alcohol ink came off. What a fab effect!
The reindeer and "Merry Christmas" stamps were from old Papermania sets, stamped onto glossy cardstock with Archival ink and decorated with distress inks.
