Tim Holtz Distress Ink Color Pop!

Hi readers! Happy Tuesday to you! We’re excited to be collaborating with Wanda Guess on a fun monthly feature to show some fun projects using the Distress Ink colors of the month! We hope this features inspires you to get inky with these new colors! Enjoy!
Hi everyone! Wanda here, kicking off a brand new monthly feature here at Simon Says Stamp! I’m going to be spotlighting the new Distress Ink colors as they are released. Are you as excited as I am every month to see what the new Distress Ink color is? They are so gorgeous…and don’t you love the color names?! A new color is announced each month, on the first Friday of the month. It’s like Christmas every time!  I will be making a project each month – showcasing that new color. I’ll be creating a color swatch card too, so you can see where the new color fits in with your favorite existing Distress Ink colors. Today I’m using the first TWO colors together – Cracked Pistachio and Abandoned Coral.
Cracked Pistachio and Abandoned Coral are very bright, clear, and almost Tropical colors! They remind me of bright birds, flowers and butterflies. I was drawn to use Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink with these two new colors, and this color trio creates a very pretty palette.
I first die cut the Mixed Media Alterations die from a watercolor sheet. Then I used Cracked Pistachio ink mixed with water to create a wash over the panel. After it was dry, I went back over with some Vintage Photo Distress ink around the edges of the panel, and around the cut out diamonds. Next I die cut and embossed the Tim Holtz Butterfly Duo – also out of watercolor paper. I used sponge daubers to place ink onto the butterflies. Then, I took my water brush and slightly blended the two colors together. As with the main panel, I edged the butterflies with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. Next I added beautiful Rock Candy Distress Glitter to the two butterflies. Finally, a beautiful stamped sentiment to finish off the card. I assembled the card, and used glossy accents to hold the two butterflies in place, gently bending the wings upward.
I hope you are inspired you to use these beautiful new colors.
The next new color is called Mermaid Lagoon! I’ll be back soon with a project and a color swatch card. Until then, happy crafting!


Thanks for reading today and thanks so much to the awesome Wanda Guess for this inspiration today!
