It's all about distress inks!!! Jan-Far North turned me on to these wonderful inks and now I own several. I love the versatilty you can get with them along with the nice vibrant color! Here is my sample: http://stamp-shack.com/photopost/showphoto.php?photo=22774&ppuser=176
There are tons of sites out there that offer tips on how to use them. Be sure to show us what you come up with!!! All players will be entered into a drawing for a prize. Be sure to link your card here. Hope you have fun playing!!!

I have a few and admit I haven't really played too much with them so that is a good challenge for me this week! Thanks!

Here is what I played with. It is a different spin on the Distress Inks. I used the Tim Holtz tea colour.

Distress inks are my "go to" favs. I love the versatilty of distress inks and enjoyed playing with lots of techniques. This challenge card (http://stamp-shack.com/photopost/showphoto.php?photo=23482&cat=628)uses many techniques including homemade glimmer mist, stamping, water play and sponging. Thanks Christie...for the fun of a great challenge.

This was such a fun technique, I made about 8 different papers, using different colors and embossing folders. I chose this one (http://stamp-shack.com/photopost/showphoto.php?photo=23491&limit=recent) to make my card with. TFL
