Learning to love Distress! The Back Side

 If you read the post over at Quietfire Creations, I promised the back story to be revealed here.

It's only been a few years that i have been a convert to using ink pads, must less Distress inks.

I'm an artist- I use tube paints and brushes. Ink bottles and pens.
Pad are for crafters- no offense meant- it was a silly mind set and I'm over it.

To make a long story short, someone gave me a Distress pad, and now I have them all, and all the stains, stickles,markers and paints.

I've learned to love the convenience of pads- especially for art on the go teaching- and the properties of Distress ink formulas.
Ranger has been good to me!

It did take me awhile to make friends with the stains- the online class Chemistry 101 with T!m Holtz helped a lot and now we are good friends.

Not so much yet with the paints.
The fan fold base for these ATC's was going to be one of those marbled Distress Paint backgrounds I've been seeing in the videos.
My first attempts are in the circular file, and this attempt is hiding behind gold acrylic paint and the ATC"s I made to cover the back.




I just need more time to experiment!

Details are at Quietfire Creations-please hop over.
