The Challenge this month over at the Art Journey blog is any colour but black. That is actually more difficult then you think..
I made this tag in blues and copper.
This was a #8 Manilla tag that I painted with licht blue acrylic paint. After this dried I used a blending tool and some dark blue ink to make the edges slightly darker. I stamped the steam punk man on the tag with Versamark and on some sticky paper with black ink to make a mask. I heat embossed the one on the tag with copper embossing powder. I also stamped the sentiment with Versamark and heat embossed this with the same copper embossing powder too.
Next I put the mask on and stamped the Ripple stamp several times, after each time embossing it with different shades of blue embossing powder and once with white. I also put the darkest blue embossing powder around the edges of the tag and embossed this too. I though this gave a nice finish.
The last thing I did was put a brown and copper/gold ribbon through the hole and that was that.
I used the following Art Journey stamps :
