New Distress inks, yey!!!

My new Tim Holtz distress inks came today!!!
And I surprised myself by not throwing myself over the Victorian Velvet and Forest Moss straight away. No, I decided to take the Tumbled Glass and Pumice Stone for a test drive and I don't regret that.
It turned out as below, with a distressed and glimmered background, vintage embossing powder and some wild asparagus paper.



ABC challenge has P for paper piecing so I took a detail picture of that.



Papertake Weekly has buttons, bows, brads and bling (I went for brads) and if you liked the image you can get it (and many more adorable ones) from here.

Hi Helene

So I am not the only one in love with the colour distress inks. I have been using mine today - Victorian Velvet to start with.

A really sweet card and you have coloured the image beautifully.
