I spent some time yesterday colouring some tags, so when I came to clean up my craft mat, I spread another colour or two on, spritzed with water and lay a few pieces of card on, before I wiped it all off. Waste not, want not, eh?
An assortment of tags- all cut myself, mainly from assorted white card, although the one on the far left, and the two almost top centre, were cut from manilla coloured card. Some were done with the duster brushes, some with sponges and a few with cut n dry and a blender tool. You can see that the blending and finish varies quite a bit depending on the surface & how it was applied. The smoothest blends came from the Ink Duster brushes on tags cut from offcuts of Pearlescent white card. The 'patchy' ones were mainly done with sponges, and both looks could be achieved with the cut n dry, more depending on how heavy handed I was. I also used a mix of Distress pads & Adirondacks.
