I saw this wonderful project by Lynn Robinson-Hunter using Tim Holtz grungeboard and distress inks. I thought it was so bright and yet 'earthy' so I had a go. I was a little impatient and didn't wait for my card to dry (all spritzed with water) so my stamping is a little off, but never mind, you get the idea. I got (and so did my table) very messy and had very inky fingers, but it's a great technique.

I have also got some of the new Glimmer Mists. Mica particles in coloured liquid that you spray over your card/paper. Now, I really don't know why I wasted my money on them. They're £30 for a set of 6 bottles and you can get just the same effect using your Twinkling H2O's. Still, they're pretty colours, easy to use and they blend well. I made this very simple card with them, just to test out the blending.

I popped to the park for a little while this morning with my DD and GD. GD loved the slide and also fell in love with a lunch box belonging to a little boy. When he left to go back to school, she followed them all the way to the gate crying for the lunch box, lol. Hissy fit or what!!!!! Spoiled madam, no doubt she'll have her own lunch box before very long.

Hey, Lorraine.... so pleased you liked the Grungeboard/Tag project. I'm a bit addicted to Grungeboard and Distress Inks but love the Adirondack Pigment Inks too. I like what you've done with your tag and card - great colours!
Keep playing with the Glimmer Mists, you can achieve some amazing effects with them, sepecially when used in conjunction with the Distressed Inks. Happy Crafting!
