  123. Hi Roni, and congratulations on that huge number! I love Ink, I buy stamps, not shoes!! I use my stamping as layers, under, in between and lettering. I also like to add to the stamped image, by adding watercolour or as I have just discovered, metallic Neocolors. I do have favourite stamps, right now it is fish! -and feathers. Thanks for sharing ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  124. I love a technique I learned in a mini ranger U class I took at a local scrap store. It was called distress enamalled rust and it worked so well with Tim's old fashioned car stamp.

  126. I love that give-away, but I even more like your blog, it feels I've been follower of your blog for years....

    My favorite technique at the moment is blockstamping with distress inks, if you don't know what that is, go have a look on my blog...

    Her is the link I posted on my blog.. http://elliecreahoekje.blogspot.com/2011/04/huge-give-way-on-ink-stains.html

  127. What an awesome give-a-way! I just recently subscribed to your blog and your projects are fantastic. I recently started using the inking technique of using alcohol inks and canned air (used to clean computer keyboards) to create backgrounds and am loving it. Thanks for this opportunity.

And, if I knew how, I'd post a link to my blog. lol Hopefully, one of my two chances will be lucky enough to win this great haul!

    ReplyDelete
  158. My fave inking technique is the use of the craft mat and misters. You wipe the ink pads on the craft mat and then spritz the ink with a mister filled with water. Then swipe your paper into the wet ink, dry with a heat tool and repeat I go back to this technique often, it's so artsy!

    ReplyDelete
  159. Hi
    Congratulations!!!
    I am a new Follower, my first time visitng.
    For me, as I love vintage it has to be using inks to create an aged look. I use make-up sponges to ink edges after I've abraded them the edges with scissors. My most used inks are DI inks becasue they are fabulous for this look. Simple and probably quite boring to read LOL.
    Amazing prize.
    Now I have found you I will be back time and time again.
    Wishes

  188. Wow, I can't believe how crazy generous you are with this giveaway. I am drooling away at it all!! I am already a follower.

    My fav ink technique of late is one I learned from Tim:
    To ink the inside of an embossing folder before embossing the paper. Kinda creates a letterpress affect.

    Love inking with some form of resist too. Thanks for the chance to win!

    ReplyDelete
  189. my fav ink technique is to put distress ink from the pad on the craft sheet, mist with water and lay the cars stock in it for backgrounds
