Shopping our Stash #234 - Something New!

This week at Shopping our Stash we want to see you break open some of your new stuff - hopefully Santa knows you're crafty ;) You've already seen the products I'm about to show you BUT I did make this card first - using my new Distress Ink colours, Mermaid Lagoon, Twisted Citron, and Wilted Violet:


Supplies: Distress inks in Mermaid Lagoon, Twisted Citron, Wilted Violet; stamps from Waltzingmouse; Versamark and white EP

My first play with these inks was to try them together with Becca's dipping technique - ooooooooh they are gorgeous together! I amped up the splashy factor with splat stamps and then embossed the sentiment - as you can see, I didn't wait quite long enough after stamping the purple paint strokes, but I kinda like the excess embossing powder there. Happy accident. 

So what's your newest stash? Get ready to play with it - and check out my teammates for some more inspiration:

I still need the mermaid lagoon color. Now I'll need to order it, as your background panel looks AMAZING!! And, you TOTALLY meant to do that with the white EP!

Those colors are fantastic together and I need some of the purples! Gorgeous card with that big white "thanks" on top of all the splatters and strokes!

Jessi, I am so sorry, I just left Donna's blog and I still had her on my mind!

Jessi, this is beautiful! I have used those colors together on a tag and they have a beautiful visual voice! This really looks as though it was a water color. I think the your thanks is elevated by this treatment. Beautiful, beautiful job!
Hugz,
