Distressing De-stresses at Paper Maniac!


Ink:  Walnut Stain Distress Ink
Paper:  kraft CS, corrugated cardboard ( off of a random box in my house!)

This week we are distressing with fabulous Tim Holtz product at Paper Manic.  Tim's product's are new to me, but I am having TONS of fun using them.  I have always loved distressing my paper edges and sponging, but I am head over heels in love with the masks and the alcohol ink applicator!  You can use this applicator for other inks (I don't own any alcohol inks-yet!) and I love the results!


My project is a tag and is pretty self explanatory.  I used random Unity stamps that I have in my Unity arsenal, and a chipboard heart.  I sprayed the heart with the cherry ice smooch spritz and then tied the burlap string around it several times.  The flourish mask was the perfect size for this tag and I just sponged and swirled the Walnut stain ink onto the tag.  I like to make tags, but I only really use them around Christmas.  I quickly made my tag an embellishment on a card!  I used kraft cardstock for my 5x5 base and then cut a of piece of corrugated cardboard of a box, and sprayed it with some smooch spritz.  I  added some metal stud embellies (from my stash) in three of the corners and turned my tag into a card!


I hope you give some Tim Holtz products a try!
