Tag Tuesday- CCC- Christmas Leftovers

I'm just getting in under the wire for both these challenges. for Tag Tuesday at Kard Krazy   Its Christmas leftovers. A few things I hadn't put away yet. and At Studio L3.  for the CCC its scribble stains distress. Well let me tell you those little bottles hold a lot of ink. I dropped my bottle of green ink and it went everywhere, All over me and the floor, What a mess. I used almost an entire pkg of baby wipes trying to mop it up. Threw my robe in the wash. Yes I was covered in green ink. Now just wondering how on earth I'm going to get the rest of this ink off my hands. They are a lovely shade of green!
The stamps are from Oxford Impressions Sleigh Bells collection.

First, I love your tag!!!!

But then, you're too funny. I think we've all done something similar before. I did it with a jar of purple shuimmery ink. I have spots on my carpet and clothes that will never come out!!!

At least your tag is gorgeous!

lovely vintage tag Lynn, I bet your fingers will be green for some time yet, every crafters nightmare spilling inks, I usually spray everything so I use a cardboard box now.....still manage to get it everywhere though

Beautiful tag.

Here in the UK we have a shampoo called "Head & Shoulders" - it is fab for getting ink off hands. Most effective way is to actually wash your hair with it and the action of running your fingers/hands through your hair removes the ink a treat (doesn't work too well on any ink that you may have got on your nails but polish remover will sometimes deal with this bit).

Hope you aregreen hands free soon.

great tag, and as for dropping bottles of green ink.. now you HAVE to get a craft scrubbie from Ranger!! not that it will remove the ink from your clothes or carpet, but from your hands! ABSOLUTELY!

Hi Lynn,

I've been really blessed (knock on wood)with not dropping my inks, but I have gotten them all over my hands before, so I know what ya' mean. Sometimes washing with shampoo works, as one of the ingredients helps with the ink removal (not 100% guarantee). Well, I'm off to the craft store for supplies for your sculpt. I can't wait to start it, I just have to shove all the shadowbox goodies off my six worktables and get to it!

Hugs,
Meri

Fabulous tag, love Santa Claus and the Sleigh ... feels like Christmas is coming (lol).
I haven't had any accidents with ink yet but colouring sugarpaste produces similar results and I normally run around with stained hands for days!
