CC2C week 24 tag

This week's technique for Linda's Compendium of Curiosities Vol.2 Challenge is found on page 59 of Tim's book - alcohol ink resist.  I love resists and this is no exception.  I had fun playing with the technique on these acrylic circles, but wasn't sure what to do with them....

I placed them all on a tag stamped with a subtle circles of text background stamp to continue with the circle theme.  I positioned them on the tag kind of balanced on each other and thought adding the stamped word balance was fun. As you can tell, the acrylic circles are sewn onto the tag avoiding the use of adhesive that would interfere with the alcohol ink patterns.

Here's the final tag - not exactly a great tag, but I do think the resist is cool.

I think this is a great tag Penny. Simplicity is always good. You could add this to a journal page or something similar. The resist acrylic buttons are great-they came out fantastic.
