|This was how my tag looked glued and inked with tea dye D.I.|
|Resist revealed with the help of a baby wipe - looked a bit pale so stand by for a little application of vintage photo D.I.|
- Tim Holtz tag
- Seam binding stained with various alcohol inks
- Glue stick
- Background images by Stampers Anonymous

- Hampton Arts sentiment also inked using Ranger Archival jet black and heat set
- Would I use this technique again? Yes.
- What would I do differently? I would use a newer (or different) glue stick - the one I have was so old it was stringy when I applied it to the images. The video recommended a specific glue stick but I wanted to crack on this afternoon so used what I had. Though, having said that - the stringy effect kind of adds to the grungy effect - don't you think? I might also have gone in with vintage photo first time as the baby wipe used to reveal the "reveal" also removed some of the depth of my colour.
- Would I recommend this technique? OH YEAH! Super easy to achieve provided you have a heat gun though I imagine that a hairdryer COULD easily be deployed!
