Resolution: Use leftovers


One of my resolutions for 2008 is to use up leftovers. When I was working with the Shining Stone technique, I cleaned off the brayer by applying the residual ink to shipping tags. These are the fronts; the backs, except for one, are just designs. It was quick, easy, and far less messy than cleaning off a paint-loaded brayer. Versafine black stamped well over the inked surface. All I have to do now is add an embellishment or two and some fibers, and they will be ready to mail out.

First, these tags are beautiful! Second, you are so resourceful. What a great idea, here I've been rinsing all those lovely colors down the sink. So great that we can all learn from each other.
