Summer Distress Inks

This week I received my Tim Holtz Summer Distress Inks. There are three beautiful colors that blend well together.

I always love to experiment on a few tags when I first get a set of stamp pads. I used several Sizzix /Tim Holtz embossing folders on these tags. After embossing the inks were stamped onto a craft sheet and sprayed with water. I then soaked up the ink with the tags. The middle tag is highlighted with a Picket Fence Distress Marker. I love the way this marker shows up on darker surfaces.

Here is one tag I finished. The butterfly stamp is by Studio 490. The stencils are Dylusions and the embossing folder is honeycomb by Tim Holtz.
