Artesprix Guest Designer – Bag Tag

Hello all,

Today I am a Guest Designer over on the Artesprix with a blog with a great bag tag project using Artesprix “Iron on Ink”. 

What is Sublimation ink (iron on ink)? It is an interesting and fun product that allows you to create a design on standard copy paper that can then be heat transferred onto surfaces with polyester in them or with a polyester coating.  How fun is that?`

For this bag tag project, I wanted to create a soft dreamy watercolor effect in the background.. After some experimentation, I found that using a piece of acetate to apply and work the color prior to transferring the ink to paper was the key to making this technique work.  Step by steps are included below as well as a Quick Tips Video walking you through this process.
