Get inky…

Hey, folks! Not much of a chance to play this weekend—I have my sister with me, so it’s a full weekend taking care of her and watching the Game Show Network! However, I did sit down this afternoon and play with my new Tim Holtz Distress Ink colors!! If you haven’t seen them in person yet, you will not be disappointed. Those of you who know me know that I LOVE the Distress inks—they are my absolute favorites. And these new colors? I can already tell I’m going to love them!! If you decide to get them, be forewarned that the colors on the lids don’t reflect the actual colors as accurately as you might think. The ones that surprised me the most—Pumice Stone and Chipped Sapphire. On the lid, the Pumice Stone has a brownish cast and the Chipped Sapphire looks a little purple. IRL, Pumice Stone is a wonderful gray color and the Chipped Sapphire is a dark navy with no purple at all. They’re all gorgeous, though, and I can’t wait to play with them! So—if you haven’t gotten your new ink pads yet, what are you waiting for? And if you have, let me know what you think of the new colors!! Finally, if you’re looking for the colors, I bought mine online from Simon Says Stamp—they had a good deal on all the new colors and reinkers.

Have a great weekend, everybody!
