How to Use Distress Ink


Learn how to craft with distress ink with this helpful tutorial from Latrice Murphy. Add a new look to your scrapbook pages and cards by adding distress ink to the mix. Start by adding score marks to your card and then distressing the cardstock by rubbing on the ink. This creates a shaded look that really sticks out. It also creates a pattern on the paper that is completely one-of-a-kind.

Once you've rubbed the ink on the front of the side, add embellishments and other decorative pieces to the front of the card. Also, use embossing powder to create images that can be transfered onto the front of the card. When transfering ink onto a piece of cardstock, work in soft swirls to evenly spread the color. Don't worry if the colors look bold or not-blended - you can use a mister to bleed the colors together.

Love the video. I am new to scrapbooking and tried the distressed ink and it did not turn out the way I wanted it too. I was not happy and wiped it off some but almost all came off. After watching this video I now understand how to do it right. I put my distressed ink on a jewelry box. Do you use the same techinque ? I can not wait to make the cards like this. Thanks.

I thought this video was very informative and useful.
