Bright Ideas

Hello crafty friends!

I hope you are all doing well. Today I want to share and inky tag...
(this is one of the larger 3 x 6.25 in manila tags)

Stamps Used:
scribble circle
writing chevron
Large light bulb
row of numbers

Other Products:
Distress oxide ink- Fossilized Amber, Salty Ocean
manila tag (6.25 x 3)
Archival ink- Jet black
white Gelly roll pen
black ink pen
glass craft mat

I started by adding blue (salty ocean distress oxide) and yellow (fossilized amber distress oxide) ink on my glass work mat, then blotting it up with my tag. 
(you can set this aside to dry or use a heat tool)

I originally planned to go with an Alice in wonder land theme
(but like many bright ideas, my brain changed its mind and said no... lets try something else. )

(I'm sharing this so you can see we all have these moments where things just don't come together like we plan)

So you can see I next stamped my scribble circle and my /// in black archival ink. 

When my brain changed gears, I chose to add more blue edging around my tag with a blending tool. Next I added more details my stamping the chevron and adding details with a white Gelly roll pen. 

Ok, to finish my piece off I used a separate piece of card stock and stamped my light bulb. 
(I used distress ink to color the card stock before stamping on it)
I used pop dots to adhere my light and to give it depth. 

I hope you have all enjoyed this fun "bright ideas" tag!

  1. This is such a fun tag! I love that scribble circle behind the bulb! Genius! Thomas Edison would be so proud! There’s my favorite chevron!
