I am still experimenting with my distress inks. I will admit, I was actually afraid to try these. My advice to you is keep trying. My first few attempts never made it out of the craft room. But I think i’m getting the hang of it. The background was made using Distress Ink “Cracked Pistachio, Spiced Marmalade and Chipped Sapphire”. I put a little ink on my craft mat and then spritzed generously with water. I repeated the process several times. Sometimes using more than one color ink. I used a heat tool to dry each layer before inking again. I was really please with the outcome. So what do you think?
Well I mailed off my Halloween cards this week (so happy to get that done). I was especially pleased with how they turned out this year. I used a variety of products from Stampin Up!, Ranger, Stamper’s Anonymous and of course Tim Holtz. Some of the DSP was purchased at my local papercrafting store.
I could not decide which stamps from Tim Holtz, I liked better. So I pretty much used them all. These cards were made with the “Monsters”, ” and “Haunted House” stamp sets. I used a variety of Distress Inks for my backgrounds.
And how about the greeting on the” pumpkinhead ” card? That Halloween stamp got a work out. I used it on most of the insides of my cards. Please feel free to email me if you have any questions about what products I used.
Thank you for stopping by and have a Happy and Safe Halloween!!
Sorry for being away so long. It was not my intent to take this long of a break. I was able to spend time in my craft room, for which I am very thankful.
Life has been a little busy to say the least. I went to visit family in Ohio this past March for a few days. In May we had my son’s graduation from college. I was back up in Ohio in August for a high school reunion. We were also busy planning my son’s wedding this past September. To top it all off our grand daughter started pre-k this year too. I do love driving them to and from school. When she comes home she does love playing in my craft room.
I have been having so much fun playing with Tim Holtz Distress Inks. They are so amazing! I have the most beautiful “happy accidents“.
