Colouring with Distress Inks - can't show you a sample because I recycled it - it was AWFUL!

And distressing, shabby, vintagey cards - you know where you ink the edges of your image with Brown ink and rough up the edges of everything so it looks a little torn and you add seam binding ribbon that is a bit crinkled or tea-dyed lace? Love what others do but mine always looks like something I either dragged out of the compost bin from last century or stepped on with a very muddy shoe. Just can't get my head around it.

Also not very good at doing different folds of cards other than the standard fold in the centre. I feel so boring but I just seem to get confused with following directions for Tri-fold shutter cards or Gatefold cards etc. and end up scoring them in the wrong place and waste the cardstock. So frustrating! Please tell me I am not alone..........
