Spellbinders Media Mixáge and Imagine Crafts/Tsukineko StazOn Inks Tutorial

Hello blogging friends!  Today, I have a tutorial to share with you on how I altered one of the new bird blanks from Spellbinders Media Mixáge Collection using StazOn Inks from Imagine Crafts/Tsukineko.  

I had originally planned to post this tutorial last week but a few things came up and I had to change some plans.  So I am sorry it's going up a little late!

To start I used Jet Black StazOn Ink to stamp the floral image on to MB6-011 Birds One (blank).  The stamped image is from the CR-03850 Just Because Vintage Labels stamp set from JustRite Papercraft.  

Next I applied a layer of GlazOn to the blank.  Using the GlazOn allows you to use multiple colors and layers of ink without the colors blending and getting muddy.  Each time a layer of GlazOn is applied it seals the layer of ink and then once the GlazOn is dry another layer of ink can be applied.  

These are the tools I used to apply the inks and GlazOn.  I used the Brushstix to apply ink on the stamped image and then I used the StazOn All-Purpose Cleaner to clean the tip in between colors of ink.  The Inkblushers were used to apply the GlazOn and the larger amounts of ink on the top and bottom of the bird blank--the blue and green colors.

To color the floral image I used Vibrant Violet, Royal Purple, Midnight Blue, Olive Green StazOn Inks.

Here is a close up of the bird blank.  Be sure to add a layer of GlazOn in between each layer of ink.

Here is a close up after all of the inking was done.  I used Inkblushers to apply the Midnight Blue and Olive Green StazOn Inks to the top and bottom of the blank.  Then I added another layer of the GlazOn to seal the entire piece.  I just love how this turned out and it was really easy to alter the bird blank.  To finish off the bird blank I also added a couple pieces of bling which you can see in the picture of the finished project.

Once the bird blank was done I added it to a bookmark for an embellishment.  If you missed the post you can click HERE to see it.

Just as a reminder you can click on all of the images to enlarge them if you would like to see more details.

I hope you enjoyed the StazOn Ink tutorial!

  2. Hello Heidi, this is gorgeous. I have a granddaughter that loves to read, in fact she is out to break the record at her school on the amount of book read in one school year. I'm so proud of her. All the librarians in her town know her by name and their family hasn't even lived there for a year yet :)
    She would absolutely love one of these, thank you for the inspiration:)

  9. What is the bird blank made of? Metal? Cardboard? It doesn't say on the order link.

  10. The blanks are metal and can be altered or covered with various media using its matching blank die templates, embossed with textured plates, metal stamping, painted or used as is. HTH! ;-)
