Texture tags with Lindy's Magical spray inks...

I recently invested in some Lindy's Magicals Starburst and Moon Shadow sprays and was really blown away by the beautiful colours. For these tags I've used Opal Sea Oats and Bluebeard Blue Violet. I was a bit sceptical as to whether to buy these shimmer sprays as I have bought other brands in the past only to be disappointed at the lack of depth of colour, but Lindy's have a fantastic pigment and produce a gorgeous rich colour.

To create a bit of texture I die cut my tags just from some white cardstock and then squished some Ranger Texture paste between the tags and another piece of card. When you pull them apart you get a raised texture. I then just sprayed my Starburst sprays straight over the top of the paste and the rest of the tag. The Ranger paste does not resist the ink and takes on the colour of the spray.

I sponged a bit of Black Soot ink around the edge of the left hand tag and added some gold Pearl Ex for extra shimmer.

 I've also used Glimmer Mist in Dark Denim, a gorgeous rich dark blue which I've used on the right hand tag.

Of course these Tim Holtz Idea-ology Ornate Book Plate frames lend themselves to these grungey creations.

Well I hope you like these li'l creations as I hope to do more like this in the future.
