2013 June Challenge

June....and another inspiration challenge from Tim Holtz!

This month we are creating with a focus on the new distress ink pens.  We also used distress ink paints, stains and pads as well as some stamping techniques and watercoloring.

As always, it is a little intimidating looking at the blank canvas and creating something but also as always - love how they came out and the open door of more possibilities!!

The most challenging was finding the right paper.  Tim used 140lb Watercolor paper which we did not have and we played with other watercolor paper with a bad result.  Also tried regular card stock as well as some other fine writing paper - again - all not what I was hoping for.  So, I went back to my old faithful that always produces an amazing look - LaBlanche Stamping Paper.  Absolutely my favorite stamping paper.  And trust me, if you have never tried it - you MUST! It will change the way you stamp and view paper.

So here is our take on this month's amazing inspirational tag:
