SO MUCH! technique!

Happy Wednesday! I have a technique packed post for you today! I have had so much fun learning in Creative Chemistry 101. It has all kinds of creative juices flowing through my head! Here is a tag that I did while just playing around!

 To start:
I stamped with Archival Ink Jet Black on to the tag. I wanted to play with Alcohol Ink. Well a tag is porous and will not give me the results that I want... so I covered the tag in a light layer of Glossy Accents. You can see the shine in the picture below:

I then took my Alcohol Ink and created the background.

OK, here is where the new part comes in for me... My new toy is the Ranger Melting Pot. I had been wanting one for quite awhile, and a friend surprised be with one as a happy! So below you can see where I have played with it a little! It is so awesome! I have tried the Shrink Plastic technique that Tim Holtz features in the 12 Tags of Christmas 2011. My favorite technique so far is stamping in to the melted UTEE. It is just so cool! Here I stamped the Dream stamp into the melted UTEE. Once it cooled down I dusted it with various Perfect Pearls.
I have used zipper on my tag. This is one of my new favorite embellishments. Cut it, dye it, twist it, oh so much you can do with it. The flowers are from fake flower stems that I got and a little shop that buys out estates sales.

Happy Creating!
