Paint Dabbers and Distress Inks - Day 4

I created this tag for day four as card captain at Michael Strong Rubber Stamps using Mike’s dragonfly rubber stamp again along with several different rubber stamps. I recently had purchased some distress ink stains and wanted to try them on a tag.

I first stamped the tag with a couple of Mike’s dragonflies using Pearl Adirondack’s Metallic Acrylic Paint Dabber. I then rubbed three different colours of distress stains on the tag. The Acrylic Paint Dabbers act as a resist and make an interesting pattern on the tag.

I then stamped a couple of different background stamps with Stazon Ink. To complete the tag I added a dragonfly stamped on black paper with the Pearl Acrylic Paint.
