Tags & tips! by Tina Connolly

Hi there, hope you're able to find some time today to get crafty!  If I only have a small amount of time spare I love to experiment with different techniques on some tags.  Here's a few tips and tricks I discovered along the way....

Colour Blast Embossing Powders - depending what the colour is that you are embossing will effect the resulting embossed colour.  If you use Snow White over a white painted piece of chipboard the  effect is white...

but if you use it over natural chipboard the result is more silver coloured.  Used over natural wood, it gives a slightly golden, antique colour....pretty cool hey?  Three different effects from the one embossing powder!

You can create really cool effects by using two different embossing colours!  Ink the item, sprinkle part of it with one colour, shake off excess, and sprinkle with the second colour, and heat to melt.
I used this on some of the leaves, and the "happy" chipboard piece.

Colour white flowers with Colour Blast Shimmer Spray for co-ordinating blooms.
