Lots of Sparkle and Shine with Hero Arts Garden Fancy Die

2 Comments

Lots of sparkle and shine here.  The background is from shiny paper covered with Distress Inks with some sprinkles of water. I thought there was so much glitter and sparkle, that I didn’t want to add anything but a sentiment.  I sponged on several Distress inks on the card stock to make a more earthy card.

Close-up below:

On my last post of July 3rd, I showed you what I stored my Stickles in and now onward to how I store my Distress ink sponges.   Several months ago I was watching Els of Elizabeth Craft Designs do some sponging on die pieces and replayed the video to see what she used to hold the sponges.  I saw a plastic box and thought “that’s what I’m looking for!”  I checked out grocery store plastics for different baked goods and paper stores for plastic containers.  Finally, after picking up something at Michael’s I found a plastic box about 7 1/2 by 5 1/4 inches and an inch deep.  I figured I could fit 4 sponges across and 5 down for 20 on each side of the box.  Depending on how many distress inks you have, you may want something larger.  This seemed like a good size for me, one container for my distress inks (35) and one container for my Oxide inks.  I think if you could find a container 3/4 inches deep, that would work out really well too.

This container holds my distress oxide inks.  I labeled the names on the outside of the containers so I don’t have to guess.
