I am so excited!!!!!! I decided to sumit a layout that I used disstress ink at the Tim Holtz blog and I won!!!!!!! yeah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
how do you distress? (the winners!)...
hello bloggers! wow, i'll say it again, what a great week this has been on the blog. all of the sharing and excitement of using distress in so many ways is definitely inspiring. a very sincere thank you to all of you who took part in the fun either by creating a project, leaving a daily comment, or both. the blog received over 10,000 viewers per day and 10% left a comment (which is great) so thank you. we also had over 450 projects submitted and to be honest, they were so amazing, and many of them so unique it was very difficult to select the winners. it was so cool to see everyone's different styles and uses for distress. we were able to narrow our choices down to 25 and had to do a random draw from there - it was really just too creative, i loved it!
so congrats to our winners! you will be receiving the impossible-to-find, no longer available, coveted distress ink storage tin as your prize. we will be shipping the tins after the holiday weekend so be sure to email me your shipping info by then so we can get them out before i head out on the road again. i know i initially said 12 winners, but as luck would have it we found one more tin making it 13 lucky winners! but hey, we're all winners right? thank you all for taking part in this challenge. everyone seemed to have fun sharing and creating and i just might be tempted to do another type of challenge in the future! have a great weekend everyone, take some time to try a new technique or two you discovered - no doubt there are some i'm dying to try...t!m
blog comment winners (a daily random winner monday-friday):
Commenter name: Elaine Paullus - i love the distress inks and use them on every SB page in one way or another. I ink edges of photos and mats. I use them to emboss and to stamp. But, my overall favorite use with with the grundgeboard. I paint the gundge board shapes with crackle paints, distress the edges, and then use the distress inks to give that aged feeling. I love it every time! One of my favorite colors is the vintage photo. Elaine in Jersey
Commenter name: Elena Vigil-Farinas - I have every color of distress ink. I like to use the blender but I find myself distressing directly with the pads themselves.
Commenter name: Julie Ranae - I totally love that the names of the inks match the 'look' that they give. I know if I am aiming for a specific look (ie: old paper) then I KNOW that ink will give me that look...easy peasy! Thanks for a great product and a fab opportunity to win : )
Commenter name: Rosie - I loved your tip about clear stamps, I have an ink pad that I stopped using because the ink always beaded up and I couldn't get the look I wanted. Can't wait to try your tip. I love stamping with snowcap ink and then using distress ink over it, so cool.
Commenter name: Tracy - Can I just tell you how awesome my tables looked after distressing the edges with Walnut Distress Ink??!! I ended up giving them to my Mom and Dad or else I'd send you a picture Ü Really tied in the whole "antique-ie looking wood" feel Ü I truly think you need to make fingernail polish, Tim!
