....with inks is interesting. Some experiments are below.  You see, I got a new mask in the mail from Prima. 'Nuf said?  Then, Andrea at Annabelle Stamps has opened a new web site called Stamp, Embellish, Create and you are all invited to join.  Well, she is having a play with Distress inks in her first Topical Tuesday Tutorial - you watch the video, and then have a go yourself and upload the result!  Mmm- so I had a go and CASed her card and here it is:

Too bright? The image is one of Annabelle Stamps from a set called Sentimental Bluebells but my flowers are pink because I know they come in different colours, I grow them in my garden! I used Distressed Inks - Scattered Straw, Faded Jeans and Forest Moss sponged onto the stamp to stamp it, and the sentiment (same set) is just stamped in Faded Jeans.  I used Rangers Raspberry alcohol ink to make the middle background and then picked up some of this colour from the sponge with a paper Stix and used that to put some colour into the bells. Card is SU Whisper White and the ribbon is from the stash.

Now the other experiments:

This is the mask and the various sprays used to colour the paper

The one below used some of the Distressed inks I have

Then I tried chalks (below)

And then I gave it a go with the brayer and SU ink

Haven't done anything with them yet -still cogitating!
