You need a few basic items to start:-
- distress inks (although you can also try airondack inks)
- cut and dry foam, or a blending tool and the foam pads, or brushes
- smooth cardstock
I used smooth cardstock and cut a tag. I love my blending tool, and the foam pads are re-useable, just wash them clean after use.
The inks I used for this tag were Vcitorian Velvet, vintage photo, frayed burlap and faded jeans.
You continue building up the colour, moving round the tag, and going over the areas you have covered until you get the depth of colour you want.
You can dry the inks off between colours using a heat gun. I personally prefer to leave them wet as you get a smoother blending of colours in my opinion. And remember they will dry slightly lighter than they look when you first put them on.
I finished the tag off by stamping Visible Image butterflies and vintage photo and victorian velvet, and Visible Image tall grass in frayed burlap.
