2022 New Year Purple Acrylic Alcohol Ink Resist Tag

Happy New Year friends! Dana here today sharing a tag that I created to celebrate 2022. I was planning to create a layout, but I’m not a night owl so I didn’t get any pictures at midnight. That’s OK though, because this stamping technique is super fun and I had a blast embellishing this Large Acrylic Tag in shades of purple, which is the color of the year.

New Year New Dreams Label Maker Sentiment on an Alcohol Ink Grunge Stars Resist Tag

I started with a Large Acrylic Tag, red and purple alcohol ink, a blending tool with a felt pad, and alcohol ink blending solution. Once the tag was colored, I used the Grunge Stars Stamp with Archival Dye Ink to add the star print to the tag. This a is technique that essentially removes the alcohol ink from the acrylic. Let the dye ink set for a couple of minutes after stamping and then simply buff the surface of the acrylic with a paper towel. Any color of dye ink can be used for this technique, because the stamped color is removed, leaving a clear print. I tried this technique using Distress Oxide Ink, which is a blend of dye and pigment inks, and it did not work.

I painted two Number 2 Shaker Sets with white and purple acrylic paint. I filled each shaker with a mix of purple and white sequins and gems.

I used my Dymo tape label maker to create the sentiment New Year New Dreams. I topped the tag with two layers of felt flowers. I wish you all the best for the new year! I hope I have inspired you to try this stamping technique. Thanks for stopping by today!
