alcohol ink is a different ball game, its for slick surfaces like glass or glossy cardstock.

distress ink is dye ink that dries slowly so you can manipulate it with a brush or a sponge.
Ok. I thought the distress inks were alcohol inks, so that is good to know.
I think I am just thinking to buy one or two colours at this point. Mostly to try & play with. But I do like that card (and many others I have seen) where they seem to have inked the edges a bit to sort of darken & soften & give a bit more depth/definition.
