alcohol ink on metal tape


Just some more fun with alcohol inks!  I love them and I want every color!  I always want all the colors. 
I applied gesso to the tag with a texture comb.  I then applied plummer's metal tape after the gesso dried.  I love the texture.  I then applied the alcohol inks.  I think it looks pretty cool.  What do you think?
I've made a bunch of tags today.  I'm thinking I will copy my sister in the way that she stored/displayed some of her tags.  Check out her blog at

I love this tag! And the technique ... way cool! I was at Lowe's today - I knew I forgot something - the metal tape! I've seen Tim use it - I want to play. Guess I have to go to Lowe's again... lol

hello Angela,

the colors really look like a rainbow ! You let the gesso dry completely before you put on the metaltape ? Does this tape sticks on its own on the gesso ? And how did you apply the alcohol inks between the textured "ups and downs" ?

How wonderful to have a sister that you can share art with! Love your tag and your sister's little tag pockets/book.

I like alcohol inks but haven't quite figured out where they work for me. I do have some flat metal tape in my drawer. Maybe I can do what you did here and use it in my journal somehow. Hmmm, you have me thinking.

Brilliant. Both the idea and the colours! What a great way to create texture that you can alcohol ink. Now I have to go try this!
