Creative Everyday

In my never quest for organization I decided to take advantage of the free color charts PDF's you can print from Ranger Industries website. I started with the Alcohol Inks since mine were a disaster-I had to throw out several bottles that had fallen over and leaked recently(a new plastic storage box from Creative Options is on order-I'll let you know how that works out). Well after all was said and done I realized I have a lot of holes in my collection!

My 2nd order of business was to fill up the awesome Ink Palette that Tim Holtz/Ranger came out with last Fall-a few drops of alcohol ink in one of the wells,let it dry(takes about 15 min) and you now have a fabulous palette of alcohol inks to color with using the Refillable Alcohol Ink pen(you fill it with blending solution, pick up a color and away you go!) I will be testing it out later this week.

I also filled in a color chart with my beloved Distress Inks,only missing a couple of colors-I'll have to take of that ASAP.

And finally I decided to challenge myself to do something creative every day in is today's offering. I had the distress ink background sitting on my table for months so I tore it to size,punched some butterflies from the remaining piece. Used a stamp from Unity that I have never used before( I have a lot of those,hoping to get more of them inky this month) and then used the same color distress ink(spiced marmalade) to spatter a little ink. I love that background-it is my absolute favorite technique!

I am entering this in the current Less is More Challenge
