Okay, I Squealed !

Just posted a link on Tim Holtz's tag page ... guess it's not really a tag ... I just got so caught up in the little tags that I forgot to do the big tag !!!!
I was looking at Tim Holtz's tag post where he used the enameled tags and rubons ... it was pretty exciting ! I grabbed a package of each and threw them in my "take home" bag ... the bag that gets carried home and then back again ... thoughts of "maybe another day". I left work late & then went grocery shopping ... home at 10:30pm. Darn, another night of not making anything. But I kept thinking about the tags ... they were calling me. I'll just make one ... HA !!!Once I started, I could not stop until I used the whole package !!! SO DARN FUN !!!
So you start with these items ...

And you end up with these !

First step is the alcohol ink ... apply it to your ink tool and dab it on. Watch it dry and see the lovely marble-like colour. If you don't like it, add blending solution and wipe it off ... foolproof !
Then choose your rubons and start rubbing ... seriously, that's it !!
I am thrilled with them. They would be fabulous on a paper project like a mini album but imagine them as part of jewelry ... oh my !
Oh, and here's another thing that makes me giddy ... you get 2 sheets of rubons in each package ... wahoo !!
