Release day for the new Tim Holtz Distress Color is always exciting, and I’m thrilled to showcase the latest addition to the color family–Prize Ribbon! I decided to showcase this stunning new blue by using the Distress Ink pad and Distress Spray Stain. I paired it with a few other Distress Inks–Wilted Violet, Chipped Sapphire, Black Soot, and Salvaged Patina–and I’m using an ink smooshing and embossing folder technique. The embossing folder I used is a newer one from Simon Says Stamp!
The ink smooshing technique is an easy one that creates unexpected results. It’s a technique I play with a lot, both on and off camera. Sometimes when I want to be creative but not make a card, I ink smoosh. I have a huge collection of backgrounds I’ve made, which I will reach for as either inspiration for a new project, or to use on a card.
The Wildflower Field embossing folder from Simon Says Stamp is a gorgeous, detailed folder. I thought the colors of the ink smooshing would pair well with the design. I also used Simon’s Small Script Trio die set and Slimline Florals stamps to create my sentiment.
Inside the shaker are a combination of Night Sky and Moonshine sequins from Simon, as well as a floral sequin pack that I had in my stash; Simon has some great floral sequins options if you don’t have some like the ones I used.
This edge-to-edge shaker turned out so beautiful and I LOVE how the new Prize Ribbon color just shines across the background! Be sure to check out the new color from Tim Holtz!
