So far I've been edging my holiday cards and using the inks for stamping my holiday snowflakes. I was delighted at how well they work for stamping. Still so many different projects I want to try these on: journal pages, scrapbooking and more cards.
A perfect addition to the current Tim Holtz Distress Stains. Wonderful to work with and it adds a super metallic touch to paper, plastic. Love that you can apply it heavy or lightly. It's a wonderful accent.
I watched the Tim Holtz video introducing these metalic stains and decided they would add to my artwork. They really are beautiful, just like the other Distress Stains. Well worth it.
I was hoping I could stamp ghost like images in a background. The shimmer is great and the colors nice, but as a stamping medium I did not achieve what I was looking for. I got a gloppy mess the first stamp, the second was better with no re-inking. With light inking on the stamp gave a good faded distressed image with some pigment missing. I was looking for a solid shimmery image that could be seen clearly but didn't stand out too much. I may have to try looking for another medium, like a ink pad. I won't give up on this product and will try other methods and other papers, perhaps with some experimentation I can find what I was looking for with this product. Therefore, I am neutral on this product since it could be my lack of knowledge and skills in using it to its full potential, but would not recommend it to a friend till I was more familiar with it.
