Don't you just love the new distress inks....

I DO.  I got the new Spring colours this week and got a chance to play at Stamp Group yesterday.  I did some technique tags from Tim Holtz Creative Chemistry class a while back.  I had made a pile of large tags with a Tim Holtz die and tried a number of the techniques we learnt in class.

Technique Tags  #1

Technique Tags # 2

Technique Tags # 3

as you can see lots of the Squeezed Lemonade, Perfect Peacock and Shaded Lilac together with lots of other distress inks, some alcohol inks.  I also had some fun blending distress inks with a Hero Arts background stamp ~ still to make it into a card.

Did another 4 cards in the nearly 11 hours I was stamping.... Yes nearly 11 hours~  from 10.00 in the morning till 9 at night.  Felt exhausted when I got home, but had a great day.  The usual talking and eating as well as crafting.  Will share more during the week.

Had a lovely day today for Mother's Day.  Early morning text from son saying he'd be around in the afternoon and stay for dinner...arrived with two great books for me. We all went out to the Bays Club for a drink before coming home for our meal.  And daughter rang after dinner and got to catch up with her brother as well.

Wow Dawn your tags look so amazing. I love those new Distress Inks (hoping to get them soon). Sounds like you had loads of fun stamping yesterday. I am glad that you had a wonderful Mothers' Day. My day was pretty good up till I tried to cook dinner lol. Oh well at least the house is still standing ;o) xoxoxo

Wow that was a long day of stamping, but sounds like lots of fun. Your tags look amazing. I love the colours. They look great with the birds and butterfly stamping and embossing.

Those tags are so scrumptious, Dawn! I love making them, too. Have a stack that I made for that class that I never did anything else with them, yet!

What a long day of stamping! That sounds like so much fun to me - so nice that you have a group that meets on a regular basis.

Happy Mother's Day to you - I had church, then stopped at my daughter's and son's houses on the way home. Calls from the others. Love my youngun's!!!
