Challenge Chicks 02 – Tim Holtz Distress Ink

The CHF Challenge this week is to use Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pads on your card or paper crafting project. I chose to create my background by laying color from my Distress Ink Pads directly onto a craft mat, spritzing with water and then dabbing the cardstock into the color. Here I have used Shabby Shutters and Broken China. I used Cryogen White cardstock, and the trick is to not over saturate the cardstock and to dry with a heat tool in between swipes. When you are satisfied with the color, you can over stamp with your focal image and sponge the edges.
