Playing with Tim Holtz Distress Pens

It's me again fans....

Super Sunday, great F1 racing. Shame Jensen or Lewis didn't win but not long until the next one!

 What do you think of my card using the new Distress Pens?

The background was made with the new TH Spring Colours, Distress Ink pads, purchased from Ali-Craft, great customer service from this on-line store.

The stamp is one I've had for years, a Penny Black image called 'Fireworks' 3948K.  I inked the stamp with various colours using the Distress Pens. You can see the colours I've used from the picture on the right.

 I had a great time playing around and tried 'blending' the inks as I coloured a number of stamped images on various types of card stock ... not very successfully I'm afraid, in fact the experiments were a total failure apart from the technique I've used on this card!

  I will try other paper and card stock and see how I get on, but I think using the pens on the stamps directly seems the best way, for me, to go. 

Have you used these pens? How have you got on with them? Please let me know.
I must say I love the colours. They are not as vibrant as the ink pads but gorgeous just the same!

Thanks for looking at my blog today .
Enjoy the rest of the weekend.
See you soon
