Colour Your World – Happy Crafting

I love Tim Holtz Distress inks and use them on a daily basis,
I am a bit of an neat freak in the sense
I like to see everything in front of me, rather than looking at 10 things
before I can decide which colours work best with my project.
So I have on my wall a colour chart for most things,
Tim Holtz Distress Inks, Cosmic Shimmers, Stickles, Promarkers.
But my Wall was getting a tad messy as Tim Holtz distress inks had two charts
1 for his regular ink pads and 1 for his seasonal, so I took to making my own
chart having all the current 48 colours on one page.
I have then cut out small strips from Cardstock 1cm by 4cm
which then fit perfectly on to my chart, I then colour
the whole strip using one of the ink pads
and let it dry, once it has dried I use my embossing pad
(I use VersaMark Dazzle) and on the 
coloured strip stamp 2cm’s with the pad, and
then add clear embossing powder and heat
till the powder has glossed half your strip.
Then using either a tape runner or
glue dots stick it on your chart.
Follow the above steps for all your ink pads.
I once I finished my chart laminated it, as it means it
will stay clean and it will last much longer
and no chance of it getting grubby or torn.
Hope the chart helps you too x

  1. Very cool, thank you for Sharing it!
    Greetings from Germany

  2. Wow, this is so very helpful and just what I was looking for. Thank you so much. Will be sharing your post….

  3. You are both very welcome x It is a great way of keeping note of your colours x

  4. When you colored the strip did you just run the stamp pad over the strip or did you use some kind of applicator to apply the ink to the paper? I find that these two methods results in different intensities of the ink and I rather like the way yours looks.


    • Hi Laurie
      straight from the ink pad hunni,
      I wanted the intense colour so I could have a good idea of my colours.
      Lots of Love Karen x

  5. Hi Karen,

  6. Thank you so much for sharing this Karen! I have just done a new Oxide ink table and added yours underneath so I have both on one page now, maybe I’ll add it to my blog in case someone wants to use it too. XOX Lucy
