How I stamp on metal .....

Everyone has their way of stamping on various substrates. But the new Archival Inks on the Metal Foil Tape was a fun challenge for me.

I told you earlier you can stamp and seal.

Well, here's an even easier way to do least for me.

I used the new Metal Foil Tape from Ranger, Glossy Accents and an old brush.  Put a bit of Glossy Accents on your metal and spread evenly and very thinly on the metal.

Be sure to keep working it evenly until all the bubbles are gone. The thinner you spread it, the less the bubbles show up.

Let dry and stamp with Archival Ink colors of your choice. I used a Haberdashery stamp here from Tim. Very VINTAGE looking!!!!

The middle one has gesso on the chipboard and Rose Madder Archival Inks lightly added and wiped off. Heat set to dry.

I also used Claudine's Gesso on the metal, let it dry, and then stamped images from Adverts Stamp set from Tim.

Be sure to HEAT SET your inks with the Heat Tool or they will not dry.

I used a scallop pair of scissors to trim and added to heavy black chipboard.

These fun labels can be added to little bottles of anything you find around the house. I used Jet Black Ink here.

Enjoy and happy CREATING ART!
