any suggestions?
also... are you using a Ranger craft mat? If you are distressing on top of a scrap piece of paper then the paper is soaking up your ink AND your cardstock is soaking it up. a craft mat doesn't absorb the ink and will allow you to start your circular motion on the craft mat and creep onto your cardstock without going dry...
