Distress Ink Custom Blend DIY Ink Pads VIDEO

ACK!!!!! When Tim Holtz first shared the news about DIY Custom Blend ink pads, my heart pitter pattered! I LOVE me some distress inks and now ink pads that I can customize with whatever colors I want? HELLO! I got the pads in the mail yesterday and immediately started customizing!!! I shared a photo on my Instagram and Facebook page and had soo many requests for a video! So, I stopped everything and whipped one up for you real quick (while Lily napped and Lucas was playing)….. I’ll show you how they arrive, how I added the color, how I created the label and then I’ll show you how the colors I chose to use look on paper! And since they are distress inks, they react with water so naturally I stamped it a second time with some water activation magic! πŸ™‚


You can watch the video right here or even better. Over on my youtube channel in HD! And I hope that if you’ll hit that subscribe button if you haven’t already!! πŸ™‚

    Wonderful video. Love your color combos. Thank you so much for sharing how you did this. I was wondering, is it possible to maybe mix your inks to make a custom color, or would that just be wasteful and come out muddied?

    Thanks in advance!
