i was browsing 'simon says stamp' and saw this dry ink pad.
the opportunity to make my own custom 'distress ink'
rainbow was just too much to pass up.
i inked the pad using 'distressed reinkers'
in some of my fave colours.
from the bottom:
it took a couple of days for the
colours to blend together.
i used a brayer to ink the lid!!!
now to make some thing?
i used a brayer to ink a manila tag.
i had to do it in two halves as my brayer wasn't wide enough.
water flicked over tag and dried.
tim holtz 'seasonal reflections' stamped using 'archival' coffee.
edges distressed and inked using 'distress ink' vintage photo.
