Aster Wreath...what if

you didn't use Versacolor pigment inks for this Rubber Stamp Tapestry set but used distress inks instead?  And what would a monochromatic look be like?  See for yourself.

Looks like it may be time to re-ink my brown distress pads.

I don't keep to my circles and ovals very well but I was more concerned with trying different color schemes.   It was great fun to have time just to play with this set because I don't use it, or any of my Rubber Stamp Tapestry sets, often enough.  I think it's time they see more ink!


  1. I have a few i don't use often either...!! Love the look with the distress inks.

  2. oooooo these are pretty! I love those teeny stamps and your colors are fun. Such different looks!

  3. Love the top two! I think you can use any ink with any stamp, but I have to say, I don't use the distress that often w/ RST.
    I've never tried monochromatic with these either, and it's gorgeous! Thanks for the idea.

  4. Very worthwhile experiments, with beautiful results!
