I was watching some Tim Holtz YouTube videos demonstrating the Distress Ink pads and decided to tear apart these little snippets of lettering and work in some color from my distress inks. Actually you don't need to use these ink pads--any ink pad will do but you need to use a make- up sponge or something like that. I actually used the Tim Holts foam pads--( is there a supply item that I don't have???) I don't know what I will do with these yet. They are all about 2x3 ish. I guess I could make some cards or something and glue them on. No stitching for these--it would be overkill for sure.
