Video Tutorial Monday #11 – Using Distress Inks

November 22, 2010

Good morning! I’m just popping in to post this morning before leaving for the airport. I can’t wait to get home! It’ll be so nice to be back in Wisconsin for a week or so. Loveeee. Anyways, the idea from today’s tutorial came to me after reading on a couple places on the internet that people have collected the Tim Holtz Distress Inks for the pretty colors but didn’t really know what to do with them. To them I say: watch this video! Hopefully you’ll get a sense of what you can do with them. I show three of my favorite distress ink techniques. Here’s today’s card:

The pretty twine bow. I think it adds the perfect touch. :)
