I tried the chalkboard technique that Tim used on his tag and it just didn't work for me so I used a different chalkboard technique. I read his instructions again and can only figure that I'm heating the embossing powder for too long. I'll give it another try but might not have time before Friday.
This tag involved a lot of improvising. I didn't have the new stamps, or the Industrious Stickers, so I substituted there. The stamp is from the My Favorite Things-Chalkboard Greetings stamp set. I embossed it in white and then rubbed Ranger Adirondack Snow Cap pigment ink into the background with my finger. I edged it with a chalk marker. The arrow is from Tim's Sizzix Bigz Love Struck Die. The border is from Tim's Sizzix Decorative Strip Vintage Lace die. Both were cut from manila cardstock covered with aluminum tape and then distressed with a combination of Ranger Latte alcohol ink and Snow Cap alcohol ink mixative. I also added the Ideaology Philosophy Tag and Wire Pin.
Another habit I'm trying to get into is making two of everything. It usually doesn't take much more time, since all of the supplies are already out, and that way I have one to keep and one to share!
Have a great day!
