Tag 1: Shadow Stamping

Because Tags are such a "HOT" item at the moment I wanted to try a tag tutorial too! It's not easy let me tell you! And I don't mean the tag but the uploading to blogger. This photo upload system is very stubborn!
Anyway here is a tag with what I call "shadow stamping". It means the same stamp is used multiple times.

Omdat Tags een "HOT" item zijn op het moment wilde ik eens een tag-met-uitleg proberen. Maar makkelijk was het niet. De tag ging nog wel, maar die uploader van blogger... daar heb ik steeds ruzie mee!
Hier is een tag met wat ik noem "schaduw-stempelen". Ik bedoel daarmee dat dezelfde stempel meerdere keren wordt gestempeld.
(De uitleg is alleen in engels. Als je daar problemen mee hebt geef dat even aan in een reactie. Dan zal ik proberen te verduidelijken waar nodig)

1. Because I don't have white tags I blended in some color first. These tags do not give a bright color. If you want bright colors I recommend working on white paper and triming that to fit your tag.

2. Before embossing don't forget to heat set the ink and swipe with the anti static puff. That little pillow is a lifesaver to avoid all those specks of embossing powder!

3. Emboss with a color you want. I used transparant here.

4. Add more color to accent the embossed area's.

5. Ready any embellisment you want to use.

6. Now for the shadow stamping. Ink your stamp in the colors you used for the background (not together but one at the time!) I used Broken China and Shabby Shutters. I stamped once with the blue and once with the green. After drying the print will fade into your background leaving a very faint image. A shadow image.
Gently wipe excess ink of the embossed area's, which will resist the distress ink.

7. Distress edges and color with Frayed Burlap. Add embellishments, stamp desired quote with a permanent ink (like StazOn) and finish your shadow-stamp tag!
