Tag You're It!

Here is my oversized tag for the Challenge. I actually made this last Christmas for my mother. This is her as a little girl. The brown and aqua combo is absolutely one of my favorites.

This technique is one from 2006 Somerset Studio magazine. It is a great article on "milk-resist" stamping. It came out great. The concoction of milks is very sticky to work with but comes out very nice on cardstock. I attempted to use it on acrylic painted papers and chipboard but it didn't work at all. Basically, you stamp images on paper using 50% skim milk and 50% sweetened condensed milk. Then after heat drying, I sprayed it with a walnut ink spray and wiped immediately.
