My Art - September cardmaking - alcohol inks

These cards feature tags cut from plastic packaging!! Free art supplies! Gotta love it!!
I used a tag die (Sizzix) and my Cuttlebug to cut out the tags from the clear plastic. Stamped them with black StazON on the front and then applied alcohol inks (Ranger) to the backs in a variety of colours!! They are so vibrant!! To help them stand out from the card fronts I added a white vellum tag to the back. I attached the two tags at the very top with a LITTLE piece of double sided tape. This keeps them centered on each other once they are strung onto the fiber. You have to be careful when you put the double sided tape on the back side of the tag. You cannot remove the double sided tape without also removing the alcohol ink so if you accidently place the tape off the edge of the tag just trim away the excess to the edge of the tag. It was so fun picking colours to highlight the colours in the tags! Each card has an embossed layer - leaves (CB) and roses (SU) and some coordinating fiber!! Layered greetings can easily be added to these cards in a neutral colour.
