June Tag with Jennifer
June 14, 2017
Hello! It's Jennifer and I'm back on the blog to share my tag for this month! Dream catchers are definitely in trend right now and I love the color palette of this Echo Park Paper collection! I'm going to show you easy techniques to give your tag some wow!
First off, I colored my Acrylic Tag with Ranger Alcohol Ink in Butterscotch. We prefer alcohol inks over any other because they are solvent based and will "adhere" to the smooth, non-porous surface of the acrylic. Also, it dries fast! I chose one color but you can definitely play around and blend in different favorites!
I then FLIPPED my tag over (to prevent any smudging of color) and used the 6 Inch Imagine Mascil with metallic paste. I wanted to use only the "dream" script so I blocked it off using washi tape.
Before lifting my Mascil, I lightly sprinkled the metallic paste with dry glitter to give a little sparkle to my tag!
Ok so it didn't turn out perfect but its a learning process right? LOL I think I was in too much of a hurry and didn't use my anti-static pouch.
Once my word was dry, I added patterned papers from the collection as well as stickers. I love pennants and created a banner with some of the coordinating stickers! I also used foam tape to pop up my dream catcher to give some dimension to my tag! Lastly, using some spray ink I colored my ribbon to match my paper and tied to the top once dry!
Thanks for stopping by! I hope this inspires you to do some creating with Clear Scraps acrylic and Mascils! Have a great day!
