Couldn't resist Chandelier

This was a fun tag to create using ideas from Tim Holtz blog.  First cut out two tags one white cardstock, other clear plastic.  Get out Ranger blending tools and alcohol inks.  Cover clear plastic tag with alcohol inks...I find the darker the better for this technique.  allow alcohol inked tag to dry completely.  On the side with the alcohol inks stamp images with Ranger jet black archival ink (this is one time it pays to use what technique calls for).  dab off black ink with soft cloth.  it works like a resist technique...really cool.  Tape alcohol ink resist tag to cardstock tag.  Over stamp with same jet black archival ink with chandelier and sherlock penguin images from Memorybox Stamps
This tag is for chandelier challenge over on Gingersnap Creations


  1. Oh this is adorable! Interesting that you I mention using Ranger Ink, I think this technique has been troublesome for many - maybe that is the reason. I do love the candleabra Tim Tag I did, the challenge calls me for a 2nd go. Best wishes of the season,

  2. Your technique came out beautifully! A very cute scene, too... reminds me of the game "Clue", LOL (the penquin in the dining room with the....) Thanks for playing along again at Gingersnap Creations!

  3. That is a really neat technique! LOVE the turquoise color you chose--and your images are fabulous! :) Great tag!!!
