Today I tried new products and made samples ... want to see ?
First, I have this new paper in stock ...
I cut the pieces apart ...
|4x6 journaling card|
And Voila !! A cute decoration or gift !!
|These 2 are the same card - just the reverse !|
*I used spray mists & paints. That was okay but I felt like I didn't have enough control. And maybe that's just me !! lol
* I used my new RANGER INKING TOOL with distress inks and loved that ! More control and great coverage. And the new tool is fabulous ! It is smaller so it fits very nicely in my hand - perfectly, actually. And the round foam means no edge lines. Again, perfect.
* I added doodling with my favourite white Signo pen and a black Sharpie pen. Lots of fun !!
Then I broke out the new Distress Marker Spritzer from Ranger. It is amazing !! I never thought I would get such great coverage. All you do is put a marker in the holder and then squeeze air over the tip. Low tech. Sounds kind of crazy and ineffective but it is GREAT !!!
|this is using the distress markers - worked really well !|
|Then I tired the Sharpies ... also excellent !|
|Also with Sharpies !|
I now had all these little stencils ... time to make something with them. I decided on cards ...
|There are 2 sheets of stars in the package, 2 different thicknesses, and 48 pcs total for $3.75.|
|For the pink card I used a misted stencil and added a few Tim Holtz rub ons and some ribbon. Easy !|
I stamped it, coloured it with my Distress Markers and a waterbrush, and then made a card.
|This daisy is really pretty.|
I added a little yellow chalk in the centres of the flowers but it doesn't show well in the photo.
I wanted the card to be quite simple.
