Using supplies and tools

One week into the new year and I've managed to make a couple of ATC's using supplies I've had for a long time but never opened. I bought some walnut ink crystals about 4 years ago and have always been afraid to use them. I don't know why, but it's the same with my heat gun and embossing powder. However one (?) of my New Year's resolutions is to boldly go where I've never gone before and don't be intimidated by my tools. What's the worst that can happen? I don't know yet but I'm sure I'll find out.
Here are the cards I made using my walnut ink for the first time.

Stampit stamp used with blue archival ink on the torn dyed background. This was mounted on cork and then blue basil base. I added a small red heart brad and a plain red brad.

Another Stampit stamp used with blue archival ink on dyed torn background, mounted on blue basil. A small dragonfly brad was added for an accent.
