I am happy girl whenever I get new Distress Inks. Very happy. I immediately put the Summer Distress Inks to good use, but then got busy with the baby and didn’t get a chance to post it. But better late then never…
Welcome to the new Summer Distress Inks. Bright. Cheery. Happy. Perfect for those of us who like non-distress-like colors but like the Distress Ink properties. The three new colors are Mowed Lawn (the perfect grass green), Picked Raspberry (the perfect hot-ish pink) and Salty Ocean (the perfect true blue). These colors are “true” colors – the perfect green, pink and blue. Definitely filled a missing spot in the Distress Ink palette!
So I put them to good use the same way I did the Spring Distress Inks a couple months back (HERE). I white heat embossed my favorite background stamp on watercolor paper and rubbed the inks directly over it in three big stripes. I then sprayed it verrrrry generously with a Perfect Pearls + water mix and let it blend and dry on it’s own. Love how the pink and blue blended to make a gorgeous purple, too…
Fun. Simple. Ready for the mail. Ready to brighten someone’s day.
By the way, THIS is the stamp set I used. In love.
I was able to get my hands on an extra set of these Summer Distress Inks to give to a lucky winner. Leave a comment here by Friday night at 11:59pmEST for your chance.
(And the winner of the Simon Says Stamp die was Tania – I emailed you.)
