What better way to start off the first day of national craft month than to play with some new tools and supplies. I have been seeing many stampers blogging about how much they love their new MISTI stamp tool and decided it was time for me to jump on board. After watching a few YouTube videos and playing with it can say it really is a super awesome tool for getting exact beautiful stamped images. I think now I need to expand my stamp collection! Also new for my stash was the line of Abandoned Coral Distress Inks. This is part of the new color a month release that Ranger is doing this year and I am loving it. I'm not usually a fan of coral shades but this one is lovely. So I sat down to just play with the color and try out some stamping, so I started with a manila tag and then colored my image in with distress markers and Prima watercolor pencils. Added a bit of shimmer with Wink of Stella markers and a few embellishments.
Here's a full list of supplies used :
Tag- Ranger, ink - Ranger and Memento, stamps - Tim Holtz and October Afternoon, pencils - Prima, flowers - I Am Roses, stick pin - Maya Road, markers - Ranger and Wink of Stella, punch - Martha Stewart, charm - Tim Holtz, ribbon - Hug Snug, stencil - Tim Holtz
Wishing you a lovely day, Lindsey
