New Distress colors

 Yes, the new Ranger Distress colors arrived
and of course I could not resist playing.

The colors are beautiful and I loved making the background.
I used my craftsheet to make the background.
Some color pressed to the craftsheet,
spraying a little water and lifting the
color with the tag and drying it with a heat gun.

On top you see the birdcage
(colored with distress peeled paint stain
and sprayed with copper perfect
pearl mist). Flowers and bird are
stamps by Michael Strong.

Have a creative day!

Very nice Hetty, the background colours are really lovely. I'm trying hard *not* to buy any more ink pads but these are very tempting!

Hallo Hetty,
Wat een gave kleurtjes he.Ik heb ze ook (maar nog niets meegedaan).
Welk papier heb je hiervoor gebruikt?
Ben zelf nogal op zoek naar goed papier. (met stains en water bij de distress inkten, krijg ik geen mooi resultaat)
groetjes Monique
