O.K. confession time. I have never really liked all the Tim Holtz stuff, it’s mostly too grungy for me. But then I started seeing all those distress inks and I bought one. Oh my, the clarity, I couldn’t deny it, I LOVED his inks. Then I found this stamp set a year or so ago at Michaels marked insanely clearanced at $3.99….alrighty then, this doesn’t look so grungy. I inked it, stamped it, Aha…so this is what all the fuss is about. Stamps beautifully. I received a gift certificate to Hobby Lobby for my birthday . I was pretty sure where those $ were going. Yep, I picked up my first pack of Distress Markers. Oh my, no disappointment there. I am in love with these brilliant clear colors. I will have to learn to use teeny amounts. I thought I used teeny amounts and look how deep this turned out. I love the vibrancy though so I decided to turn it into a wedding card. I had no plan when I started, just wanted to use my inks and thought his stamps would be a perfect place to start and so it morphed into this. I got a lot of mileage out of a few scribbles. I also got two more pieces of water color paper inked up with a base coat. Also three more cards all made from the same few scribbles. I can see my Water Color Paper stash will not be coming into the spotlight.
