NEW ARRIVALS!!! Tim Holtz Distress Marker Spitzer in

It's here! It's here! It's here!

If you're not keen to get into the hassle of airbrushing (and of course the unspoken but very real additional cost), but always love the effects …  you're in luck! Tim Holtz has launched the perfect tool for creating airbrush effects on craft projects with the Tim Holtz Distress Marker Spritzer.

The Tim Holtz Distress Marker Spritzer allows you control and to add unique layers of color and depth to projects. It is hand-operated, lightweight and easy to use … and by that we mean, simply insert the brush tip end of the Distress Marker into the tool and squeeze the bulb to “spritz” ink onto paper craft projects.

If that's not amazing enough, there's an adjustable marker insert that allows you to accommodate a variety of marker brands - watch the demo where he even inserts an oval/ oblong marker! 

Apparently, we're not the only ones who thinks this product rocks, as it was named a CHA Hot 20 Award winner too!

Scrappy Angie's: Tim Holtz Distress Spritzer Review

OH YES!! It's finally here. The Tim Holtz Distress Spritzer - one of the hottest products from CHA 2014!

What is this gadget you may ask? Well, think of it as a mini airbrush handheld spritzing tool - compatible with all brands of markers!

Copics, distress markers, sharpies, memento markers ... EVEN Montana acrylic marker pens!! As long as they have a felt tip  - you can use it.

So how do you use it?

1. Put you marker thru the insert with the brush (felt) tip of the marker
2. Make sure the tip is sitting nicely over the flat edge and it's past the air hole, else nothing will be spritzed out.
3. Tighten the screw and you're all set!

Here, I've placed a stencil over some white cardstock and all you got to do is squeeze the pump like so and wa-la! 

1. Direct the tool - not the marker - to where you want to spritz. 
2. When changing colors in between, make sure you clean your flat edge to not contaminate your markers.
3. If you are using alcohol ink markers - they may stain your stencils.
4. For a more intense color, go closer to your cardstock. For a lighter spritz, go further. :)

Now, remember - this spritzer is compatible with almost all sizes of markers. How do you make them fit? 

1. Remove the screw
2. Then remove the insert

SEE!! It fits the Montana acrylic markers... Oh, the possibilities!

Here's a look at the airbrushed effect I created with the spritzer.

NEW ARRIVALS!!! Studio Calico Wanderlust Collection in

Created with the help of Shanna Noel, this quirky collection - Wanderlust - from Studio Calico mixes graphic travel icons with vintage prints and fanciful colors.
Here's what Shanna has to say about this line : 
Wanderlust is a collection not only for the traveler but also the dreamer! I wanted something that could document your latest vacation, or adventure but also the WONDER of life in a fun and playful way. When I started dreaming about this line I thought about a girl on a journey and thoght about the things she might collect along the way. I love how the designers at Studio Calico come together on this playful collection. The patterrns are useable for so many occasions, and the embellishments are one I will reach for time and time again!

Available now in HERE
