As some of you may know from my previous blog entries I really love creating my own backgrounds but I have a confession to make...I only bought some Tim Holtz distress inks very recently (I know, where have I been)...then when I got them I didn't have a clue how to use them...I'm so ashamed lol.
I can't say I know exactly what to do with them now but I have learned that messier the background (and the more covered in ink I get as well lol), the better it looks! I used a Tim Holtz blending tool to help but I've just discovered Cut n Dry foam which is also great for blending.
I've tried so many different card making technques but I think I have really really found my favourite...and that is using distress inks...I just love getting messy and seeing what transpires...and I love the grungy vintage look as well.
I feel this won't be the last you see of the distress inks..you know what I'm like when I get something in my head lol.
