summer seasonal distress inks...

I wanted to show you a quick way to alter these new 
BEAUTIFUL



below they are used on a manila tag...
they were applied to the tag with the blending tool...

what bright, translucent colors...
it's a great color combo!


now here comes the secret ingredient for altering these distress colors & ANY of the distress inks...


this pad should cost $50.00...for all it does...
get it before the Ranger guys figure this out!
LOL!!!

note to self...
get a new pad to use for photos...duh! messy...



try this!
tap the snow cap pad directly onto the manila tag
 to completely cover it...

dry it with the heat-it tool...

then use the blending tool to apply mowed lawn & salty ocean to the tag...

the result is an awesome chalky looking effect...
I hope the photo shows how pretty this is...




and here's a side by side comparison...

2 different looks, 
just by adding the snow cap pigment pad to your art supplies...

 by adding the distress inks over the snow cap, 
you double your distress color choices!

like the old commercial said...
double your pleasure...
double your fun...
geez I'm old...

it's true...

look...

now for the winner of the brand spankin new

congrats to...

I love these two colors together. They epitomize summer in both sunlight and shadow.

I love those two colors together. I have always thought blue and green together were just perfect. These colors scream summer and I really hope Cindy changes her mind about the first of July it seems so far away!

My new inks are winging their way to me... why didn't I order the Snow Cap too? *Slaps forehead*!!! Fab idea and great tutorial - thank you!

Oh, I agree, the snow cap ink is essential...and a bottle of reinker too.
Looking forward to seeing the new embellishments.

Your white ink pad isn't icky, it's well loved! I have 2 - one to keep when I need real white, the other when I don't need a real white. Hey, do you need help sorting the new arrivals? lol

I do not have the Snow Cap ink pad yet. Thanks for the reminder Wendy! Hey, I would love some of the Blossom Bucket embellishments because they rock just like you. Any other takers out there? Karen :)

Wow!! It is hard to believe it's book 7 already... seems like book 1 was just yesterday. I actually had to go count because it just didn't seem like it'd been that long since I became a Wendy fan... time sure does fly!!!
