My Little distress Ink projects

Happy Wednesday!

Hope everyone having a great day... Last night I tried out my new Tim Holtz Distress Ink. I think I'll be using for alot of my projects mainly my paper projects even paintings. I like the affect if you spray water on to it. I even use my fingers to get the affect I wanted out of them. I use a sheet of white paper the one that came with the page protectors. I cut it into four squares and then use my decorative scissors to cut the edges. Then I just went to town with creating different looks. One I mix one color each on the paper. Yes, I did use different foam for each color...
I like how it came out and use a little bit of color. The other three I just use the one color each. I liked how each has turned out. I am probably going to use them in my heritage albums. Maybe for matting photos but I think it will be for journal information for my pages.

  1. Your textural backgrounds using the inks are brilliant Justie. I especially like the wrinkles in your vintage photo piece. Looks like you had great fun experimenting and playing around with them. They'll make a superb addition to your scrapbook layouts. Looking forward to seeing what you do with them if you share on here. P :) x

  2. Great work with distress inks!!!! I love distressing tags!!!! Enjoy playing!!!!

  3. Paul and Michelle thanks for the comments. I somehow like the peeled paint the best. Don't know why, lol.
