Woohoo!!! They are here… the completion to these ADORABLE Mini Distress Inks. Sets 10-12. So happy that they are now available in all 48 colors.
For the card I created, I wanted to play with the Ranger Texture Paste since one of the properties I absolutely love-love-love about it is that it is inkable.
I flipped it over and applied the paste to my (current) favorite stencil… Gothic. I use the back of the palette knife to apply the paste. Spread it all over like you are frosting a cake. (I hear that’s how you frost a cake anyway… I’m not much help in the kitchen… well, except help EAT the food )
Then, I took Milled Lavender and applied the ink directly onto the paste. I did the same with the Tattered Rose, Chipped Sapphire and Shabby Shutters. After the ink was down, I used my mini ink blending tools to blend the colors around the pasted pattern. (I got so excited that I forgot to take a picture of that step)
I stamped one of the quotes from Attic Treasures in Shabby Shutters and lightly “kissed” certain parts of the stamp with the chipped sapphire.
And I HAD TO add perfect pearls to the project… It’s my latest addiction. My stamp-a-stack girls (or stamp-and-snack as tim thought it was called) can attest to my obsession.
I inked the edges with Brushed Corduroy and put it on black cardstock for matting. I attached a hinge clip to the top of the quote.
One thing I loved about making this card is that I stepped out of my comfort zone when it came to color combination. I seem to always reach of the same colors for most of my projects. But, it was fun playing with other colors.
Please leave a comment and tell me what your favorite color combos are for a chance to win a set of the new mini distress inks. I want to try some of your new color combos.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
