Using the new Teresa Collins DP's, Penny Black stamp inked with
Tim Holtz distress markers, Spellbinder edgabilities
and Fleur de Lis and Hobby House pearls
Good Morning Peeps, how's your weekend going ?
Mine has been pretty quiet so far, seems to be the story of my life nowadays and it's really cramping my style not being able to walk far, but I have started the ball rolling to get some sort of lightweight scooter and might even share a picture shortly.
Meanwhile I have been busy working away at some cards as I was set a challenge by Janice at Sir Stamplaot to get into action with the new Tim Holtz Distress Markers along with some of the other new goodies now in stock.
The Penny Black stamp is inked with Tim Holtz distress markers, Teresa Collins DP,
Penny Black sentiment and Hobby House pearls which I think are
fabulous value at £1.45 a sheet.
Since I started using the thumbnail system below it's really opened my eyes to just how many different things we use in making each card, no wonder we all run out of space.
I think I am most excited about the distress markers, they come in all the same colours as the inkpads so you can blend everything perfectly. One of my favourite stamping techniques inking the stamp and spritzing with water before stamping and for me this is when the new markers really come into their own as you can colour the smallest elements without bleeding, if you look at the card above you will see I even managed to get some blue into the middle of the leaves and it stayed put.

Have a good Sunday everyone.
