I have been fascinated with my friend Shelly use of Tim Holtz inks lately. So I decided to try my hand at a little distressing. After all, a pirate map has to be OLD, right??
I used 3 or 4 colors of Tim Holtz Distress inks (don't know exactly since, for once, I cleaned up as I went) and the Inkssentials blending tool on the edges. It was the first time I have used it. I saw Pat and Bad Sherry use it at the RubberNecker booth in Akron, OH, but I never tried it myself. I do have to say--it is pretty cool!! It was more even and more predictable than a sponge.
