Now what I am sharing today is a work in progress. I have worked on it off and on for the past couple of weeks. It will probably take another week or so before I am finished.
I am making reference cards for all the Tim Holtz Distress Products that I have.
If I do not have a product in a certain color I just blend ink on that area then make a note of the colors and items I still need to purchase. (I had lost track anyway)
For example, the Evergreen Bough is a Winter seasonal ink so I do not have the marker or stain to go with it.
While I am at it...If there is a certain combination of ink colors that I like to use to match certain lines of patterned paper, I make a little note of that on a thin strip of paper and put it on the ring with the rest of the cards.
Now the next time I am working on something, I can pull out my cards and decide exactly what color Distress inks, stains, or markers that I want.
And too, there is just something kinda cool about looking at this ring full of beautifully colored cards. :)
