Get Dirty with Distress Inks by Celine Navarro 11/08/2009
I hope you guys have been busy scrapping and waiting for your next Studio Calico box to arrive! :D
You guys are going to LOOOOVE the November kit! :)
Ok so today I thought I would show you one of my favorite products : the Distress Inks from Ranger. Those are amazing! You easily use them as regular ink but also blend it with water and make great stuff with it!
Here's a little how-to to get started with those inks, and, as you might have noticed before, you'll find in the SC shop all of my favorite color inks ;p
First of all, now that you can definitely work with the Distress Inks without embossing your stamps first, simply foloow these steps but avoid the stmaping/embossing process ;)
What I like to do when I work on some tags is to choose my favorite stamp at the moment (obviously, this SC hot air ballon is my fave at the mo'), stamp it onto a tag with Versamark ink and emboss it with CLEAR embossing power (personnally, the ZING one from American Crafts is just the best). Then emboss your design with a heat gun.
And here's my layout! :)
Take care everyone! :) See you on the Studio Calico website!
