that is the question bloggers - how do YOU distress? if you're like me creating anything without adding a little distress ink here or there would be practically impossible. whether it's stamping, blending, spritzing, or simply a swipe of the pad, adding distress ink to my projects is inevitable. of course when it comes to the colors of distress ink choosing a favorite seems to be yet another impossibility. with a palette of 36 vintage hues the nostalgic colors of distress ink are unlike any other ink out there. some days i reach for old paper, others it's broken china with a bit of spiced marmalade, but lately it's pumice stone. you see my favorite shade of these timeless tones of distress ink is as random as my creative thoughts - you just never know. what about you though, do you have a favorite color? what's your favorite way of distressing? what kind of project do you like to create with distress ink? ...so what's with all the questions? what gives? well....i am!
that's right bloggers as luck would have it while cleaning up the warehouse recently, this was discovered...
remember these cool distress ink pad storage tins? of course due to increased manufacturing costs these highly popular storage tins are no more - they were discontinued back in january. these distress storage tins which held the original palette of 24 colors have become harder and harder to find and now with the addition of the 12 new colors of distress they are even in more demand. well if you've searched for these you'll agree with me when i say they are practically impossible to find. that is until today because not only did we find one tin...we found 12 of these beauties, and quite possibly one could be yours!
