Distress Inks

I'm part way through (75%) writing a HUGE 'How To - Tips & Techniques' with Distress Inks at the moment.
At the Doncaster show I had so many comments on the card below which is one of the projects made by using some of the techniques.


The book pages used are from an old 1949 book about the Publican trade and makes for quite funny reading - lager didn't exist in those days and if you made £3000 a year as a publican you were deemed to be doing very well !!

As soon as I've finished all the pictures and the write up I'll pass the link on to you - but the most important thing with Distress ink is to play and experiment with them.

Brilliant card Deby and it reminds me I'm sure I have a couple of old books that were my much loved grandmother's about how to be a good housewife, Lol! I bet they'd make humourous reading to.

What a great idea, to use an old book.
By the way, your card is fantastic.
