In Distress

Here are my newbie attempts at distressing stamped images.  I really like playing with distress inks, but think I need to learn to use a lighter touch.  The 1st card has been embossed with a Cuttlebug frame folder and also distressed, the 2nd card is waiting for a sentiment to be added to the bottom, but I'll leave this 'til I know who and what it is for.  Please leave a comment, oh and do let me know if you have any tips on distressing - thank you :-)

I'm impressed with your attempts. I had seen in some magazines stamped images that have been coloured with distress inks and maybe in the future I will have a go. Because I've never done this before I have no advice for you, but it looks like you have done well anyway - your cards are lovely - Michelle

I love your cards. I've bought a couple of distress ink pads but gave up in despair when I just produced a huge mess. Looking at your cards I know at least what lovely effects you can create.
