New toys

Hi everyone!!!!!

It has been a week since I posted!  EEEK!  Last week was a busy week.... :)  I have some new toys and have been trying out new techniques.  SO FUN!!!!!!!

I finally got myself some Tim Holtz goodies...

Card Cover: So, what I did was take a sheet of paper from my sketch book and used a white pigment ink pad (SU!) to stamp a neat background image.  Used a heat gun to dry.  Blended the distress inks.  Sprayed with water.  Dried.  Sprayed with Shimmer Mist.

Inside of card:  I used two distressed ink pads to color the stamp then stamped on some more white paper from the sketch book.  Blended distress inks.  Crumpled paper.  Sprayed with water.  Dried.

Assembly:  Trimmed paper and cardstock.  Distressed all around all papers.  Poked holes in top left of inside paper.  Used crop-a-dile for eyelets on bottom right of inside paper.  Attached everything.  VOILA!  No cuttlebug or cricut this time...  

I thought my first time using Tim Holtz distress inks turned out cool.  I loved using my new crop-a-dile too :)

I have another new toy, but will wait until I post the finished project before I tell :)  

Any guesses?  

Hint:  It is helping me with my first ultra mini-album project.  My first album project ever, actually.....

tata for now!
