My distressing journey

Ok so it’s not as bad as you’re thinking.  I’ve been buying again…blame the weather! It’s just too manky to go out anywhere lol.  Hence the new cuttlebug, nestabilites and now this…

I’ve invested in the Today’s Special Value from yesterday on QVC. I’m not that into the grungy look but I love the new distress ink colours and would love to be able to do more than cut and stick once in a while so I thought the kit would be perfect.

So now I can be messy!!!!!!

I had a very quick attempt using an ink pad I already have and a make up sponge (not really the best thing)… this is what I ended up with. It’s nowhere near perfect but for a first attempt it’s not too bad.

More to follow when my kit arrives!!!! I may even manage to update this blog more often!

We all have to start somewhere! I think that for a first attempt you've done really well.

That looks great... I love the distress inks and use them not nearly enough. Have you played more?
