Firstly I'd like to say I had a brilliant weekend I went to Crafty's in Liverpool to watch the fabulous Lindsay Mason demonstrating. Thanks to her I have now spent a fortune on Tim Holtz Distress Inks and I have dyed fingers.
Here are two of the backgrounds I have made with the distressing inks. I also entered the raffle while I was in Crafty's and I won a Rotatrim with all the accessories worth £79.99. I was very pleased to have won this because I had just wrecked my current trimmer trying to cut paper while it had wet glue on it that's what I get for being impatient.
