Day #3

Allrighty, here we go for my day three interpretation. I would just like to state that today was not my best day ever using alchol inks. I am not satisfied with how that portion of my tags turned out. I guess we are all allowed to have an off day. (Please say "yes"!)

Here are my tags for today. I saw that Tim did two and thought to myself that I would only do one. Then I didn't like how my first tag turned out, so I did two also.

Sorry it is sideways, but it's just that kind of a day so far. Here is the deer tag. I like it a little better than the bird one. The metal tag says, "Happy Holidays".

Here you can see a close up of the tag and see how I sprinkled the Liquid Applique with glitter before I heat set it. It sparkles so nicely.

Did you all know that if Archival Ink is till wet when you sprinkle on your glitter it will stick to the ink? I didn't. Now I do. That is why I wasn't as happy with the bird tag. I should have heat set the black ink before I went on to the next step. I was a little excited. I added a jingle bell that I had floating around in a drawer. So my tag will "sing".

See? He is glittery all over, instead of just on the snow.

Oh, well. I think every artist and crafter has little things happen like that every once and awhile. I think someone else will like the look. I'm only dissatisfied because the end result doesn't match my vision. That is OK.
I used Stampendous and Tim Holtz stamps on these two tags.
Thanks for looking.

Wow! If this is your off day, then i'm definately going to go check out your good days! I haven't done my plaids yet, had a little set back this week, but will be back on the stamps soon.
