Happy Weekend! I tried the Tim Holtz Seasonal Distress Inks arrived in the mail today:)

Stamps: A Little Loving, Santa Paws (Paper Smooches), Just a Note (Unity); Inks: Rich Cocoa (Memento), Iced Spruce (Distress Ink)

The hat is stamped using reverse stamping technique. Iced Spruce is a gray very similar to Memento London Fog.

Made for CAS-ual Fridays Challenge CFC28: Tag You’re It

Stamp: Pretty Phrases (Paper Smooches); Inks: Evergree Bough, Festive Berries (Distress Ink); Others: Embossing folder, watercolor paper and perfect pearl mists.

Evergree Bough is very close to Pine Needles but a little lighter (brighter). In my background I used both Broken China (lighter, bluer) and Evergree Bough. Festive Berries is a more intense color to Memento Lady Bug but a similar brightness.

I learn this “watercolor paper emboss and mists” technique in the Holiday Card Boot Camp by Jennifer McGuire (Online Class). The result is quite beautiful in real life. The sentiment is stamped with water on a piece of card stock covered with distress ink.


Tomorrow, I will try to finish the origami gift box tutorial. Good night~
