I used the base die of PB's Burst of Red Poinsettia die and cut it out with my inked Yupo paper, and then added just a white layer of the detailed die. I placed this on a Casual Fridays tag that I had stenciled with a TH Bubble stencil and Soft Stone ink. My "Merry Christmas" was stamped from PTI's Christmas Blessings stamp set, and a few tiny pearls and some seam binding and silver cord finished off this tag. Here are the other 3 tags I made from the one piece of Yupo paper:
The two bottom tags give you a better idea what the ink dropping technique looks like on the Yupo paper...it is so fun to literally watch the ink move when you drop it on the special paper! For those of you not familiar with Yupo paper, it is a synthetic paper and not porous, so the ink does not sink into the paper. It actually stays on top of the paper and kind of floats around. There is not a whole lot of control using alcohol inks and Yupo paper...it's a surprise each time you do it! Kind of like water coloring for me! But anyway, a lot of fun to play with and always unique!
Loll and her special guests still have more inspiration to come (till the 18th), so if you like making tags and want to play along, you can check it all out right HERE.
Thanks so much for stopping by today...I love it when you do! :0)
