TMTA - Tags


This week's challenge is to use a tag on your ATC - mine is titled 'Hope'



For Momiji
The background was made using a resist technique. The image was stamped with versamark and clear embossing powder was added. I then brayered the ATC with Bignjuicy ink. When this was dry I placed a piece of copier paper over the image and ironed off the embossing powder, you will see it lift off onto the copier paper. It gives a lovely resist effect.

what an excellent technique - ironing off the embossing powder - I am going to have to try that... I love this... she looks like she needs a cuddle and is looking for hope so you captured emotion well.

I always love your work and this is no exception to that rule
