Playing Around With Some New Stamps

I ordered a bunch of new stamps from Joann' last week and received them quickly.  I was able to play a little today. These are from Tim Holtz and I used a stencil from Crafters Workshop for the square pattern.  First I rubbed Adirondack Snow Cap pigment ink from Ranger on the entire tags.  Then I used stamping foam and rubbed distress inks on the surface of the tag.  I stamped the background image with Distress Ink and then stamped the hot air balloon with Ranger Archival.  I painted and sprinkled the tag with Twinkling H2O's.  Remember to heat dry between each layer if you try this technique.  I had lots of fun and especially dirty fingers.

Best Fishes

This is a birthday card I made for my husband. The stamps are Fred Mullet, Studio 490 and Studio G. The ink is Distress Ink and Ranger Archival Ink. I used Distress Markers to stamp the fish. Then I restamped the fish with Archival Black Ink. The stencil is Balzer Designs and I used Biscotti Pearl Mists and Melted Chocolate Dylusions Spray Ink.
