Distress Class at Forget me Knot

This week I had a lovely distress class, using the Tim Holtz ink pads and pens. The first card we made uses some of the fabulous stamps from Indigo Blu. I showed the ladies how to colour seam binding using the ink pads. The frame was stamped twice and one cut out and attached with foam pads onto the background. The flowers were stamped and coloured using the foam applicators and a pen was used to colour the centres. The leaves were stamped using the pens....a great idea if you have a colour in a pen but not the same colour in the pad.

products used:
Stamps: Indigo Blu Blooming Great
Card: Distress Co-ordination Crushed Olive, Brown card, white smooth
Distress Inks: Dried Marigold and Shaded Lilac
Pens: Crushed Olive and Mustard Seed
Ribbon: Seam Binding
Next card was made using a super stamp from Justrite, great for mens cards and with fathers day just around the corner ideal. I stamped the image twice and from one piece cut out elements to colour and attach back on foam pads. The sentiment is also from Justrite but could easily say Happy Birthday. This is a huge red rubber stamp and I can see lots of ideas to play with over the coming months, its stamps beautifully...as do all Justrite stamps whether they are rubber or poly.
