I love to create inky, layered stamped tags...I often use them instead of cards (I just write on the back), or I put them on scrapbook pages or on art journal pages. Here's how to make a fun & quick inky tags with Maya Mist.
What you need:
First I sprayed a couple of squirts of the Lemon and Fig Maya Mist right onto my Ranger craft mat. I took my rubber brayer and ran it through the ink on the mat, then rolled it over the manila tags. The result is spontaneous and interesting! I didn't cover the whole tag with ink, just part of it. I like to leave white space.
Next I used the same colors (Lemon and Fig) and added some stenciling with to the tags. I used the same colors because I wanted a tone-on-tone look that would add visual interest but still be in the background.
I love to sew on tags, so I tore up a page from an old dictionary and stitched the pieces on with my sewing machine. I also inked the edges of the tags with black ink.
Next I added some stamping! The black ink pops against the colorful background.
Try your hand at some inky tags...it's lots of fun!
