Having a play with distress inks!

I was lucky enough to get some Tim Holtz distress stains for Christmas and I was inspired by the Craft Stamper magazine  to give them a go with two sets of dark Room Door's gorgeous London stamps.
I used Daler Rowney Art masking fluid (smelly but inexpensive and effective) to mask the areas where I wanted light, and then dipped a sharpened pencil into it to get a snow effect.
Given it is the first time that I have ever used the stains I was pleased with the results.

I have some exciting news which I will be sharing with you shortly so, "Watch this Space!" x
