Time to Play with Tim's inks~

Hello Ladies~
Wow! Two posts in one day.....Am I ok?

It's ages since I had a "proper" play with Tim Holtz inks. I love them, but don't use them enough, or at least not the gorgeous vibrant colours. I usually just use the Walnut Stain or Black Soot to edge something.
Anyway that has all changed today. I got up and thought I would have a bit of a play.
I must admit I did watch Ali on Create and Craft yesterday and she was doing a similar project, so this is what I came up with after watching how she used the inks, thanks Ali!

A Close up of one of the cards~
I have this MME paper with words on, it is white, but by the time I painted an acrylic block with two different colour inks then spritzed with water, I stamped on the paper to create the backgrounds.
I then used a few of my Nature stamps and stamped them in Black Soot. I then matted them onto matching papers and then chose these small 5x5 Kraft cards to finish them off.
The gorgeous little ticket stamps are Whiff of Joy. Doodling round the edge and a sprinkle of Stickles and they were finished.
