Crafter's Cafe Blog Challenge


Hello, Crafty Peeples!

Father's Day is closing in on us and over at CCCB we would like for you to create a card, tag, ATC, scrap page or altered object for that special man in your life.  I have been working on a rub-ons resist technique that I learned over at Tim Holtz' blog, so I decided to do this tag to to tie on my husband's father's day gift.  My grandson called it "pretty, but girly".  I think my husband will understand.

Digi Image: "First Kiss" by Limited Runs Stamps
Butterfly by Prima
Rubber Stamp by LaBlanc
I really love the look of this technique using rub-ons.  Notice how my stamped image seems to float beneath the sentiments, even though the rub-on were applied to the tag first, before the distress inks and stamped images.  Cool, huh? 

 I have fallen all the way in love with Ranger's Distress Inks and Paints.  Joann's has them on sale today for $2.99 which is a $2.00 savings and I  purchased all the colors that were available on line.   The colors I ordered will hold me over until the next sale and then I will get the rest.  

Another item you will want to have, particularly if you plan to do Vintage or  really Funky Steam Punk cards and tags, is Rub and Buff Wax Metallic Finishes.  You can find the sampler kits on Amazon and  They tend to have better prices than art supply stores.

Thanks for stopping by!

  3. What a fun tag, I love the idea of using the resist technique with the rub on. This is brilliant idea and I may have to borrow this idea.

    I am sure your other half will love the tag.
