I was a stamper before I was a scrapbooker.
I used to work at an educational bookstore that held workshops for school teachers. I would get to help demo the new stamps and latest techniques whenever the Hero Arts rep held a class. Bonus was being able to order whatever I wanted from the Hero Arts catalog whenever the store placed an order. That changed once I started scrapbooking, and soon my stamping and purchase of stamping products greatly diminished.
Even though I knew about Tim Holtz Distress Inks, after all these years I never tried them. Well as of now, that is no longer the case. I finally broke down and bought myself a couple of ink pads and that is all she wrote. I am hooked.
I have to say this project is perfect when it comes to buying ummm, I mean trying out new products.
I thought I would try using an old stamping sponge to blend the ink. It worked okay. I am sure if I had used an ink blending tool it would have worked a whole lot better. I will most definitely have to buy myself a couple of those soon. Very very soon.
