Technique Junkies

The Crafty Nurse here with a post using some of the great new release stamps from January.  When I saw the book themed stamps, the first thing I thought about was creating some fabulous bookmarks.

I used alcohol inks a few different ways.  First I dropped them directly onto the tag then added 91% alcohol on top with a dropper to create great movement.  Then I used the more traditional polished stone technique using the applicator and blending solution then pouncing on the tag.

After applying the ink, I stamped “Books #S644” on a few tags and heat embossed with clear.  I then chose several of the sentiments from “Bookworms #SS054″ and stamped those as well.  To finish off I created tassels with bakers twine and metallic thread.  I found a great tutorial on Pinterest on how to make these very quickly.

I hope everyone is enjoying their new year and making time to get your fingers inky.  Also, don’t forget, Pat has offered $15% off the January Release stamps until the 8th so stop by the Technique Junkies store and grab up some goodies.

Take care,
