Artful Networking



I wanted to create an artsy business card. So I have spent my Sunday afternoon working on the tags shown above. I used Ranger Distress Ink to add the distressed look. I created the file in publisher, using the same banner that I use on etsy and blogspot. Then sent them through my printer and presto! It turned out better than I had imagined. I took a detour for awhile browsing the Ranger website and the blog/website of Tim Holtz. If you have never looked at his work, go do it now. Incredible! I have used his Distress Ink for at least 3 years and I absolutely love it. I discovered his stamps today, they are amazing. I plan to buy some ASAP. His designs work well with my style. I can't wait to get my hands on some.


I also wanted to include one of my first collages on today's post. I used a portion of this collage to create my banner. Enjoy!
