I HAD to get the new Tim Holtz Fall 2011 Distress Inks! Yes, HAD to! I have all the other colors and the Distress Inks are the one collection I allow myself to keep "complete". I'm reading a buzz about new Christmas colors too..insert heart palpitations here...and I will HAVE to get those too!
Here's a set of Thank You cards I made with all three new colors! I wanted to use just one color on each card so the background, rosette color and sentiment are all stamped with the same color. The pic isn't great, but the colors are SO pretty! The purple and brown are my fav out of all the purples and browns!
I made the rosettes by just piling on the ink, scoring, gluing and adding a button and/or twine. The Basic Grey "Pyrus" buttons were the perfect color!
Then I stamped "thanks" with Lawn Fawn's "Jessie's ABC's" and "Bannerific" in the same ink as the corresponding rosette. The background stamp is also from Lawn Fawn's "Schoolhouse Backdrops".
Thanks for stopping by and have a fantastic day!
