New masks and Grungeboard

I should have been doing the washing and ironing and general housework, but I got sidetracked by the new products by TIm Holtz this morning, and decided to have a quick play.
I used our chipboard tags, and at first thought I will try alcohol inks with the mask. Errr wrong, it didn't like them, and the ink leaked under the mask, as well as the mask sticking quite badly to the inked paper! Will have to work on that technique!

Then I tried the same stencil with distress inks, and I liked this technique ( note to oneself, must invest in more colours!) This is using worn lipstick, and old paper. I also used The Artistic Stamper swirls in the background. The stamp is one of Tim Holtz's and the sentiment is for a friend of mine.

Finally I made Christmas style tag, using distress inks, pine needles, and worn lipstick, and the snowflakes from the new grungeboard-Seasonal. I also stamped the Father Christmas from Victorian Christmas 3.The gold is Krylon pen, and I inked the snowflakes with distress inks, and then wiped over with the Krylon pen. Did do a bit of sanding but probably not enough.
Now back to the mundane things in life- ironing, cleaning, and washing!!
Happy Stamping!
