Posts Tagged ‘Adirondack Dye Ink’

The theme for The Virtual Crafting Challenge this month, is ‘D’. For those of you looking to get started in Distressing techniques with paper, this series is all about my favorite tools for creating Distressed looks. 

Before I started using paints to distress things, I used ink. Here are a couple of my favorite inks for distressing. 

Alcohol Ink

This is perfect for distressing/aging and otherwise altering 

Metal, Glass and plastic. 

I use this on embellishments like clips and shiny surfaces.

Great for distressing on card and paper. Although I should add that I use Espresso, Terracotta and Latte rather than Pink Sherbert!!! 

Apply with Ranger Cut n Dry foam, for an airbrushed aged effect. 

Check out my Tutorials page for more information and inspiration for distressing paper and card. 

Best wishes and thanks for reading, see you soon

Welcome Back

I would like to share with you a video tutorial on how I create my own background papers, using dye based inks and rubber stamps. I was going to do a written tutorial on this some time ago but it is MUCH easier to show you in a film ;)

So here goes with my third You Tube film;

 

Do let me know what you think and if you have any questions just leave me a comment, here or on You Tube.

Best wishes and thanks for watching/reading ;)

Welcome Back

I would like to share the book page I made for Megan over on the Stamping Mad Forum’s book swap for July 2008.  Megan’s theme was ‘ Seaside or On the Water’.

I didn’t have any suitable stamps so Megan very kindly stamped some images for me and sent them with the blank page. This was the first time I have used silicone glue to give my images dimension and I will definately use it again, even if it does wiff! (Stink). I have not had any luck buying any decent 3D foam square in the last few years so had a go with the silicone. Sadly there was only a little left so will need to buy more.

Any hoo back to the pages
