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,

  1. I’m always amazed at how these turn out…you never quite know ’til it’s dry. I love them all and thank you for sharing your various techniques and a tutorial. I’m very partial to that turquoise and tan one for some reason.
