It certainly fly's round here.
The tip today is a carry on from the last couple of tip or tech Tues
still sticking with distress inks.
Today I would like to show, my colour chart tags,
I made them so long ago they are looking tatty
(time to make new ones I think)
There is a tag for every colour of distress ink,
(they are white tags & not manila, so you get a true colour)
I am going to use the aged mahogany tag for the photos,
not for any reason other than it was the first one I grabbed.
I used the same stamps on each tag so it kept them quite uniform,
I did choose the stamps carefully
I wanted a text stamp & a bold stamp that covered most of the tag,
so when I use them for matching colours
I can see what I want to use it for.
Each tag has it's colour name on the back
I used the ranger labels again,
here's the LINK to them if you missed it last time.
I stamped the images in the colour
& blended the same colour with a blending tool all over the tag,
(darker round the edges so you get a variation of colour,
I use these tags for matching
patterned papers & embellishments to my projects,
I also use them for depth of colour,
(that may sound strange,
but how many times have you used a colour
& it came out darker than you thought it would)
I have also taken them to the shops before now
when I needed to colour match something.
I hope you like this tip & find it helpful,
I'm sure if you make a set of these tags,
you will find other uses I haven't even thought of,
