Distressing.....

Hey everyone. Hope your all having a fabulous day. Thanks for stopping by!! The owner of my local scrapbook store Michelle asked me the other day if I knew anything about distressing. Well I said I don't like to get dirty. I can stamp all day with out ever getting ink on me. I tried decoupage once. I hated it. You get all that glue all over the place. Not my favorite thing. But she showed me these great new Tim Holtz stamps she'd just gotten in and said I could take a couple home to play with. Well I couldn't pass that up now could I?

What do you think?
I had ink all over myself by the time I got done. It's pretty messy. I made a big pile of distressing stuff on my counter. Thought since I'm going to give it a go I'll try a few different things. So we have distressing embossing power, distressing inks, Pearl Ex powder, distressing stickles, regular stickles & distressing glimmer mist(I made) All in all I think it turned out pretty good. Don't know that it's my favorite thing, but willing to give it another try. I do still have more stamps to play with.. :o)
