Distressing Bank Holiday!

Hello One and All! Thanks for visiting!

Please don't get upset by the title - even though it has been raining most of the weekend so far, we have had a lovely weekend at The Paperlane! Today was a workshop on how to use Distress Inks to colour character stamps. The project that we made was a small gift bag - all of the ingredients for the project are listed below.
Here is a picture of the fabulous projects that were made in the workshop today...
PROJECT INGREDIENTS (all stocked at The Paperlane):
In the Bag Die (Tim Holtz)
Pocket Gift Tag (Memory Box)
Character Stamps (Magnolia)
Fontiments: Birthday Sentiment Stamps (Uniko Studio)
Border and Ribbon Punches (Martha Stewart)
Distress Inks (Ranger Inc)
Vintage Seam Binding (Paperlane by the metre)
All of the images were coloured with Distress Inks, and we had great fun playing with the technique - they all concentrated so much it was silent at times! I thought they had all gone home ;-) 
Thanks for a lovely day ladies! Time flies so fast when we are having fun! Look forward to seeing you all again soon! X
UPDATE: For everyone who is waiting for the Saturated Canary stamps to arrive from America - they are on their way! We will let you know straight away via the blog, Facebook and Twitter when they are here! You could always drop in the store or email if there are any that you would like saving!
Ta Ta for Now! :-)
