Soaring by to say hi

Hello! Well...I received my order of Tim Holtz Distress Inks and had a chance to play with them on Friday. I had to re-watch Jennifer McGuire's Thinking Inking classes on 2 Peas. I just LOVE how she works with these inks! It's amazing!
So, here's my first attempt at blending the inks along with embossing. I'm happy with the result but I think I have to change what type of cardstock I use for this technique. I used the Georgia Pacific cardstock. Can anyone give me other recommendations?

For the card details - I used PTI's Spring Moss cardstock and Everyday Blessings patterned paper. I used a Martha Stewart border punch and a Inkadinkado stamp which I embossed. I also used a PTI sentiment and three of my hoarded buttons.

Now, I've got to go watch Jennifer's other classes to see what else I can do with these inks!

Thanks for stopping by today. If you have any other tips for these inks...please feel free to share!
