Default Distress Ink Pads??

I have 4 of these ink pads and I'm not sure how the finished look should be or if there is a special way to stamp with them. Does anyone have aany samples of cards where distressed ink pads were used???? Or have any info for me about them?? Thanks.

I dont neccessarily know what the finished look "should be" but i know what i like to do with it. I like to crumple my paper all up, flatten in and then lightly rub the ink pad over the top. it highlights all the wrinkles with the ink and gives it an aged look. i also use it on torn edges all the time. my best hint would be just to play with it till you get the results you like... stamping and scraping is very personal and it is most important for you to enjoy it! hope that helps any...

This card

is one I did with distress ink. The giraffe is stamped onto a piece of glossy card that I faux linened with distress ink. Faux linen works really well with distress inks.
Also the crinkled piece of cardstock behind is distress inked. I crumpled the piece of card up, swiped it with the distress ink pad, squirted it with water and then waited for it to dry. I didn't bother to iron it flat as I liked the texture of leaving it crumpled. Hope you find it useful.

Default Distress Pads

Although you can use these Ranger pads as you a regular stamp pad, they are made for direct to paper to age the look of a background or an image i.e. stamp your image such as a script and then wipe the distress pad over the edges and on the image so it looks old. Hope this helps . P.S. My favourite is Tea Dye and Vintage paper. Sometimes I use two different ones to give a nice old look. By the way SU's creamy caramel and close to cocoa will work as well.

Don't forget these ink are made to react to water, stamp or rub on paper and spritz with water then heat set to get a really good aged look, the ink is *supposed* to bleed.

Do the paler colours of Distress Ink (like Vintage Paper) come out opaque on dark colours?

I love love love these inks!! Ya know how we all were taught to sponge edges? Well, with these you basically can do it and its so soft looking..they are a dye ink but the dry time seems a bit longer so you can blend blend blend...

My favorite is black soot..

Also just thought I would mention that not only are they supposed to work with water, they do not loose their color when they bleed out...they are highly pigmented so it keeps it color and doesn't wash out like other dye inks will.

I, too, checked out the Tim Holtz link Lisa posted and it was great! NOW I understand these inks and am interested to try them. Thanks for the question and all the helpful answers!

So true Keri - the Black Soot is made with coal, so there is no blue or purple pigments if you want to sponge with it. Pure black baby.

This is kind of a hijack and I apologize but I wanted to ask Lisa if she enjoyed the Tim Holtz classes? I just signed up to take 2 in August and I'm really hoping they are worth what they cost.

That's ok Betty. It's my thread and I was curious myself, but didn't want to get off track from the original thread.
