New distress minis

 Hello friends!!

A really quick post tonight.....
Today its all about the the new Tim Holtz mini Distress release!!
Read all about the new fabulous colours over here at Tims blog
I'm excited to share a quick tutorial using the mini ink pads.....


Take a handful of your favourite distress minis and apply the ink
direct to the heat mat.....
spritz with a mister to get beads of ink



Take a layering stencil (I used latticework) and lie it down over the top of the ink



Next apply a piece of card over the top and smooth down firmly with your fingers 

The effect is very similar to Tim's June tag here
doing it this way you get the added extra......those cute tiny beads of ink inside the pattern


You can get a few prints, but remember  the colour will fade each time you spritz with water!
I cut some of the inky prints down to size and used them as a background for a card.
 



Have a great week

June Inspiration





Hello friends
Hope you are all good!


Just a quickie post from me today 
to share what I've been creating...

I used a photocopied image from one of my vintage photographs
and made an image transfer using clear sticky tape.
The tag was created by adding old pages of text using matte medium,
then applying lots of distress inks
I framed the image using industrious stickers, frames and boarders and cut a
alterations honeycomb frame work die in black to layer behind it
I then added stitching, some old vintage buttons and lace and rubbed on some Remnant rub-ons
To finish I layered it up onto some Kraft card and Black cardstock.....
As always feel free to comment.....great to know you popped by

I've been having lots of major problems with blogger
 at the moment........ Grrrrr
(fingers crossed this publishes ok)

Have a fabulous week

May Inspiration




Hello friends!
Remember me??
Yep....I'm so behind with pretty much everything...
Life's just been so busy,
but....
 today was a rainy day and I managed to get some much needed shed time!
there's still time to enter....
as its been a while since I blogged I thought I would "celebrate"
by doing what I love to do .......getting inky!
I used two colours of distress inks
peacock feathers and picked raspberry 
I stamped with Rangers black Archival ink 
I used the Ideaology frames and trims, the inset is a paper from French industrial,
I then used Remnant Rub-ons  
The tags were sewn and added to a large black tag by Ranger 
I love the Papillion stamp set.......one of my favourite ever!

I really hope you like, as always feel free to leave a comment,
its great to know you popped by!

Have a great day!
