My stamping adventures

Thank you

Just can't get enough of Tim's wrinkle free distress technique.  It's a little messy but quick and easy to do.  Press Ranger Distress ink pads onto craft sheet, spritz with water or as I did here Perfect Pearl mist.  You want all the inks to bead up into puddles.  Next press and twist your cardstock into the puddles of ink, lift card and let it dry.  If you use Perfect Peal mist as I did you get an extra shine to your card....unfortunately it doesn't show up that well in the scan but it sure does in person.  Next I stamped the three sizes of Outlines Rubber stamps flowers on separate cardstocks---purple, orange and a piece of left over alcohol inked glassine paper.  Still some of the AI colored glassine paper so stamped Outlines Rubber stamps leaves.  Check out my glassine paper here or see Tim Holtz blog for his post.  Cut all the pieces out and layered them on wrinkle free colored tag.  Stamped the little round thank you saying and punched it out with a circle paper punch and mounted to flowers.  Added a little dimension to the ends of the flowers by coloring with white Prisma color pencil.  Glued on some crystals and tied ribbon on the top of tag to finish.
