Fabulous Fundamental: Tinted Texture Paste and Distress Inks

Are you loving the monthly release of the Tim Holtz distress inks as much as I am? My creative juices start flowing whenever a new colour is released.

With the Cracked Pistachio distress ink, I experimented with Peacock Feathers and Pine Needles for the majority of the background. To add interest to the background, I sprinkled water onto the background. It does not matter how many times I watch but I love how the distress inks react with is so amazing!

After heat setting the water reaction, I stamped the sentiment from a Wplus9 stamp set and inked the edges with Vintage Photo.

At this point, I thought the card was done but I looked across my desk at my new Tim Holtz Layering Stencil, specifically, Blossom. So I tinted Ranger Texture Paste with Cracked Pistachio distress ink on my craft mat and applied it through the Blossom layering stencil.

Here is the card!

Do you like this colour combination? Do you tint your texture paste? I'd love to hear from you!
