Ranger Ink Storage Tags

by Amy Bowerman

Hey there!  I’m happy to report that Metallic Distress Paints have finally arrived at studio Plucking Daisies!  I know I’ve been gushing about Distress Paints as of late and the Metallics are no exception.  I was already head over heels in love with the current line of Distress Paints and had no problem making room in my heart for the metallics.  Speaking of making room, my Ranger Ink collection is growing by leaps and bounds and I’ve been trying to find creative yet convenient ways to store my craft supplies.  I was totally inspired by Tim Holtz 12 Tags of 2013 April Tag technique to create Storage Tags for my Ranger Ink supplies.

Tim’s latest and greatest tag technique uses some really cool supplies such as the Metallic Distress Paints and the uber cool Clearly for art film from Wendy Vecchi.  Trust me when I tell you , you are going to want to add these items to your crafting must haves wish list!

Here’s my take on Tim’s 12 Tags of 2013 April Technique (For full tag tutorial click the link to visit Tim Holtz’s Blog)…

Aren’t the metallics just glorious?

Check out the wing action created with Clearly For Art film.  Super fun stuff!

While I had my inks and paints out I created a few more tags to label my Ranger Ink Storage Containers.   The box I keep my Distress Stains in once belonged to my Grandfather.  It looked pretty good on its own buuuut….

My alcohol inks are stored in a big old plastic tub…blech!

Here’s a peek at my tags after they were inked with Distress Paint and the stack of Distress Inks pictured.  I was able to create all three tags using the leftover paint on my craft sheet so keep extra tags on hand when you try out Tim’s April Tag technique…Metallic Distress Paints are good to the last drop!

I used Archival ink to stamp my labels onto Tim Holtz Idea-ology Frosted Film (another current obsession of mine) and cut it out.  I’ll be sharing the technique I used to stamp the background later this week on Featured Product Friday….so stay tuned!  If you missed this weeks Featured Product Friday kickoff with Tim Holtz Idea-ology Tissue Tape you can check it out HERE.

Finally, I ran the Storage Tags through my Xyron and stuck em’ on the containers!

Wah lah!  Ranger Ink storage goes from drab to fab with a little help from my new friends Metallic Distress Paint and Clearly for Art Film!  Big Thanks to Tim Holtz for another inspiring technique!

I’ll have more fun Ranger Ink Storage projects to share with you real soon!  Oh yeah, we are far from done here…just wait till you see what I have planned for these.  Seriously, I’m so excited about this upcoming project I can hardly stand it.  I don’t want to spill the beans so I will leave you in suspense for now :)  Don’t forget to check back soon!

Have a bright and shiny day!

Seriously, I would camp out in your studio in a heart beat!! What with all these amazing fun! Wonder if the Distress Metallic Paint ones work on plastic too, like the alcohol ink? Do tell :). And I’m drooling over the clear wings. Can’t wait to see it used in many more Wonderland creations, wink *, wink*. HUGS.
