First thing when I get new ink or stamps, I’ve gotta play. Here’s a tag I made during the Camp Scrap crop in San Jose – testing out my new Tim Holtz distress inks for summer:
The how-to is pretty simple:
1. Blend the three distress ink colors into the background. Spritz with water and/or stamp with water for effect.
2. Stamp with archival ink
3. Fill in stamps as desired with dylusions (in water brushes) then mist with perfect pearls mist.
I told you today would be quick and easy! It took me maybe 10 minutes to do this tag.
If you’re thinking… c’mon May it can’t be so easy. Well, I promise it is! Watch for a video coming next week showing the techniques I did here. In the meantime, I hope you’re enjoying Camp Scrap and your July! We’re off to a great start I think.
