Distress inks by Ranger are my #1 ink choice. I call them my go-to inks. I favorite tools include using my blending tool with distress inks on the craft sheet. Generally most of my coloring on cards is done with small pieces of Cut 'N Dry foam sponge. But my mister is always close by too so I can add perfect pearls for a soft bling. Mostly my cards are lots of layers of ink on white cardstock...and of course stamping.
During CHA the Fiskateers website hosted a weekend challenge event for those who were still at home. I really like working with the color orange so it was fun for me to jump into their theme color contests. Here's some cards I made for that event.
Pulled blender tool down top and bottom.
Distress ink pads direct to the paper.
I used a Tim Holtz stencil for this clock and misted with a homemade pearl mist. Most of the stamps in this card series are from Fiskar's bird and flower acrylic sets.
A final card for the button challenge.
Over at my friend Anne's website, Gaal's Creative she has been posting many of her incredibly creative tags she is making throughout the Remake on Thinking Inking Challenges. Monthly she hosts a challenge and this month's topic is distress inks so I made a distress resist card for the challenge before the August 16 deadline.
