Recipe tag: week 16


The flowers are from an Elusive Images set, stamped on acetate and coloured with Brilliance inks. The butterflies are from a Stampington Clearly Impressed set and the background swirls are from Visible Image and stamped in Brilliance Lightning black.

A few learnings from making this tag:

- if you are going to heat-set ink on acetate, check that your acetate is heat-resistant otherwise it will curl. Mind you, that gives a nice 3-D dimension to your flowers.

- if you are going to use solvent-based glue (like Bostik multi-purpose and I expect Uhu) on acetate, check that it does not dissolve the acetate first. Mind you, that does add to the nice 3-D dimension too.

- a dab of stickles can hide a multitude of sins
You have been warned :0)
