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.

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 Overstock.com. They tend to have better prices than art supply stores.
